    Veteran and Active Military Career Advancement Programs

    The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

    - Mahatma Gandhi

    Some part of you always knew that you wanted to serve a cause greater than yourself. You've always understood that the context in which each of us lives is as important as what we do and why we do it. At Duquesne University, we understand that, too. We know that the values behind our programs are an important reason people choose to study with us rather than somewhere else. Those shared values are at the core of the programs we have designed specifically for members of the military. And it's why the entire Duquesne family works so hard to serve those who serve.

    If pursuing your education at a university that respects who you are and what you do is important to you, keep reading to see how our programs have what you're looking for.

    "Duquesne University offers a top-notch program at a top-tier university that has directly enhanced my abilities as a senior military leader. The program offered me the flexibility to continue the course online while I was deployed to Kyrgyzstan and then immediately return to the classroom upon redeployment. I would highly recommend the School of Leadership to any aspiring military or civilian leader."
