It’s been a busy few months with college rankings. Lists from academic ranking authorities U.S. News & World ReportPoets&Quants and Princeton Review have all recognized UM-Dearborn’s programs. In September, U.S. News & World Report released their annual guide to American colleges and universities and again ranked UM-Dearborn among the best in the Midwest.

Just last week, they again included UM-Dearborn in their rankings of nearly 1,200 online programs. This time including the College of Business’ online MBA, and online Master of Science in Finance, the College of Engineering & Computer Science’s online master’s in Information Systems and Technology and online master’s programs in engineering and the College of Education, Health, & Human Services’ online master’s in education among the best. 

This isn't the first time this year that COB programs have been recognized. The online MBA was ranked No. 31 in the U.S. out of more than 130 programs considered by Princeton Review. The “Top 50 Online MBA Programs” ranking is based on a combination of institutional and student survey data, including career outcomes, technological infrastructure, academic rigor, cost and affordability, among others. The publication also named the college a “Best Business School” for the 13th consecutive year. 

Earlier this fall, Poets&Quants, a leading online publication for business education news, ranked the online MBA No. 49 in the US and last week again ranked COB’s undergraduate programs among the best in the nation. In the comprehensive assessment of undergraduate business programs, the publication ranked COB’s program 70th in the country on the list headed by Wharton and Ross business schools. Poets&Quants compiled the 2022 undergraduate programs rankings based on a representative survey of alumni and an extensive set of school-reported data like admission standards, academic experience and career outcomes.
