The University of Scranton’s Online MBA Ranked by U.S. News & World Report 2013

The University of Scranton’s online graduate MBA program ranks high and often with U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 edition of college rankings.

What we strive for in a lot of our online assignments is to elaborate on the thoughts of other students on topics, and find how they fit together.

Scranton, PA (PRWEB) January 22, 2013 – In the midst of celebrating 125 years of providing education and producing over 45,000 alumni, The University of Scranton ranked high and often in U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 edition of college rankings, beginning with regional recognition as the #10 Best Regional University in the North. This recognition marks the 19th consecutive year The University of Scranton has ranked among the Top 10 Universities in the North.

The academic excellence in The University of Scranton’s online programs was not overlooked. The online graduate MBA program ranked 39th in the nation, as well as #8 in Student Services and Support and #24 in Student Engagement. Rankings were based on the program’s accreditation, faculty credentials and capabilities, academic excellence, and reputation, as well as the support services available to online students.

“One of the things critical to an online program is facilitating ways to create interaction in a digital space, and going beyond posting on a discussion board. What we strive for in a lot of our online assignments is to elaborate on the thoughts of other students on topics, and find how they fit together. By doing this, you are essentially recreating similar, if not the same, challenges and opportunities students encounter professionally but have a more focused opportunity to apply learned strategies and techniques and, more or less, test them out digitally on their peers.” says Len Tischler , M.B.A., Ph. D., Professor in Management/Marketing of The Kania School of Management.

2013 is the second year that U.S. News & World Report has published rankings specifically for the online programs, and the second year that The University of Scranton has been recognized. In 2012, the online MBA program housed in the Kania School of Management was ranked #1 for Student Engagement and Accreditation and #13 for Student Services and Technology. The Kania School of Management is AACSB accredited, a distinction held by 5% of business schools internationally, and is recognized among the “Best Business Schools” in the U.S. by The Princeton Review.
