The leadership style seen in the U.S. military doesn't always translate directly into the business world, but one university is aiming to address that gap.
To help veterans leverage their armed forces credentials into a business career, USC had launched a Master of Business program specifically for veterans, which it's dubbed called the "MBV". The head of the program tells CNBC's "On the Money" that the degree will help bridge the gulf between what's acceptable in the military, and what may not carry over into the private sector.
"The military is a very distinct professional culture, " said Lt. Col (Ret.) James Bogle, program director at the University of Southern California's (USC) Marshall School of Business.
"The way we talk to each other. The way we direct operations. There's a tremendous amount of predictability in the military that really doesn't necessarily translate into the civilian professional world. " Bogle told CNBC.
While both arenas require results and efficiency, Bogle said there are differences between leadership on the battlefield and in the boardroom.
That's where the MBV comes in. Instead of the 2-3 year commitment most MBA programs require, USC's one-year MBV program consists of two semesters, with all-day classes held every other Friday and Saturday. The cost is $49,700.
