College of Business’ online MBA program ranked second in the state
The AACSB International-accredited program was again recognized in the latest rankings from U.S. News & World Report.
University of Michigan-Dearborn’s College of Business (COB) has one of the country’s top online MBA programs, according to recent rankings by U.S. News & World Report. The publication ranks COB’s online MBA program second in the state.
Nearly 200 students currently are enrolled in UM-Dearborn’s online MBA program, which is fully accredited by AACSB International and offers concentrations in finance and international business. Only 5% of business schools worldwide have earned AACSB accreditation.
COB Dean Raju Balakrishnan said the ranking affirms that the college is providing an education that works for students.
“At a time when the quality of some online MBA programs is being questioned, we are proud to note that our courses are taught by the same faculty with the same rigor as in our top ranked campus program,” said Raju Balakrishnan, dean, COB. “These rankings are affirmation of the quality education we provide while offering convenience and flexibility to our students.”
U.S. News & World Report surveyed 302 online MBA programs this year and based its online graduate programs rankings on statistical data provided by the participating institutions and peer assessment. COB’s online MBA program scored highest in categories focused on student satisfaction, instructor responsiveness and admissions selectivity.
The U.S. News & World Report program rankings also highlighted COB’s online non-MBA graduate program and the College of Engineering and Computer Science’s online information technology and engineering programs.
Earlier this academic year, COB’s undergraduate program ranked among the nation’s best in the Poets&Quants annual rankings; and The Princeton Review included the college in its annual list of best business schools.
