Marist's Online MBA Achieves Top 20 Rank in U.S. News & World Report
Marist College's Master of Business Administration has once again been ranked among the top in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Online Education Programs.”
For 2013, Marist’s MBA is ranked 13th out of 197 programs listed, ahead of such leading business programs such as the Thunderbird School of Global Management, Quinnipiac University, and Syracuse University.
To devise its lists, U.S. News considered admissions selectivity, faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, and teaching practices and student engagement.
Dean of the School of Management Elmore Alexander said, “We are pleased to again be recognized by U.S. News for our leading online MBA program.” Alexander added, “It is particularly gratifying because the U.S. News emphasis on student engagement aligns with our own focus on combining expert faculty with diverse groups of students and using leading-edge technology to connect them all in a dynamic learning environment.”
Marist launched New York State's first AACSB-accredited, 100%-online MBA program in 1998. It was also one of the first such programs in the nation. The AACSB is the premier business school accrediting body. Also known as the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, it accredits less than one third of business programs in the world. In 2012, U.S. News also included Marist in its listing of the top 250 part-time MBA programs, and the School of Management is consistently listed in the Princeton Review's "Best Business Schools."
