NC State Online MBA ranked #15 by US News

The NC State Jenkins MBA received more great rankings news this week.  US News and World Report issued its most recent ranking of online MBA programs and NC State placed at #15.

This is very close to where we finished in 2015.  The program was most highly rated in the area of student engagement (#9).  We also did well on admissions selectivity (#37) and student services and technology (#39).

For whatever reason we did not do as well on faculty credentials and training (#69), despite the fact that -- unlike most other online MBAs -- the faculty teaching online are the same as those teaching our and face-to-face students.  The top two schools on this dimension are Arkansas State and California Baptist; well-regarded schools such as Carnegie-Mellon, UNC, Indiana, and Arizona State are not even in the top 10.

Student interest in the NC State Online MBA continues to grow by leaps and bounds.  We are meeting the market test, as well as scoring well on the rankings.  I expect the best is yet to come.
