U.S. News & World Report Gives Top 50 Ranking to Whitman’s Online MBA Program

MBA@Syracuse was recently ranked #42 by U.S. News & World Report in its publication of 2018 Best Online Business Programs, released January 9. The online Accounting@Syracuse and BusinessAnalytics@Syracuse programs were collectively ranked #56, up from #70. The rankings include 199 programs from the nearly 230 regionally accredited institutions nationwide that offer online master’s degree business programs.

For U.S. News’ online MBA rankings, statistical information on student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technology was gathered between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017. To compute the rankings, the weighted data from a reputation survey and statistical questionnaire were assigned point values and then summed into overall scores for each school. Those programs performing in the bottom 25 percent were not ranked.
