MONROE, La. (ULM, Dr. Brice Jones) - U.S. News and World Report has ranked ULM’s online Master of Business Administration (MBA) 59th in the nation.
ULM’s online program has risen in ranks since its creation in 2009. The program features a completely online alternative to the traditional, in-person MBA experience.
The online program is geared for students who are employed full-time or require more flexible class scheduling. The traditional and online programs mirror each other in courses, content, and instructors, allowing an online student to have the same educational experience as the traditional student.
The program has received awards for its affordability and academic standing. The program is accredited by AACSB-International, the premier standard for business accreditation.
The ranking list combines multiple factors within weighted categories to achieve a composite ranking score. Individually, ULM’s MBA program ranked highest (6th place) in student services and technology.
The student services and technology subcategory analyzed access to student services online, library services, career services and strength of available technology resources, but it also factored in student debt levels at graduation.
“Not only is our faculty committed to providing a high-caliber experience and education, we are exceptionally proud that our students are graduating as successful members of the workforce without the added burden of significant student debt,” said Dr. Ronald Berry, Dean of ULM’s College of Business and Social Sciences.
