Georgia Southern Named Best Online MBA Program by U.S. News & World Report
The Georgia Southern University Online MBA has been ranked a 2017 Best Online MBA Program for the second consecutive year by U.S. News & World Report. This is only the second year that U.S. News has published its rankings of distance education MBA programs.
U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking, released on Wednesday, March 16, 2016, includes the best online master’s degree programs in business administration. Online MBA programs were evaluated on admissions selectivity, reputation for excellence among peer institutions, and academic and career support services offered to students. The Online MBA rankings evaluated schools based solely on data related to the distance education MBA programs. Five categories, student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technology, were used to rank the distance learning MBA programs.
In a separate ranking, U.S. News & World Report ranked Georgia Southern’s online graduate business programs (excluding MBA), for a second consecutive year. These programs, which include the Georgia Southern online Master of Science in applied economics (MSAE) program and web Master of Accounting (WebMAcc), were ranked based on level of accreditation, reputation for excellence among peer institutions, and academic and career support services offered to students.
“We are always happy to be recognized for providing good value and delivering quality programs. So, it is especially gratifying to be ranked again by U.S. News and World Report,” stated Allen C. Amason, dean of the Georgia Southern College of Business. “It’s a compliment to our faculty, staff and alumni, and it motivates us to keep looking forward and working hard.”
