The University of Lynchburg’s Master of Business Administration was ranked among the best online master’s programs in the country for 2024 by U.S. News & World Report.
“While we don’t specifically structure the MBA program to excel in rankings, we’re incredibly delighted when such prestigious ranking bodies as U.S. News & World Report recognize our achievements,” said Dr. Nancy Hubbard, dean of the College of Business.
“The professors who teach in the MBA program are all exemplary, and the small class sizes mean you can get the individualized attention that ensures success. Having it structured for maximum personal flexibility has also been much appreciated by our students.”
U.S. News evaluated schools in the Best Online Master’s Programs category based on a variety of factors, such as student engagement, faculty credentials, and services and technologies.
As in years past, the 2024 online rankings are designed for students who need that flexibility to complete their bachelor’s or master’s degrees. In total, U.S. News evaluated more than 1,600 online bachelor’s and master’s degree programs using metrics specific to online learning.
“Choosing the right online degree program can unlock a world of opportunities,” said LaMont Jones, managing editor for education at U.S. News. “The rankings and related resources U.S. News offers will help equip students with data to make choices that align with their unique needs, paving the way for educational and professional fulfillment.”
As with all rankings, of course, this list “should be just one element of your search for an online educational program,” U.S. News noted when explaining the methodology. Students should also look at “characteristics about academic offerings, requirements, costs of attending, and more.”
