Maine Business School named among top online MBA programs

U.S. News & World Report has named the University of Maine Business School one of the nation’s best online master’s degree programs in business administration.

UMaine is tied for 131st on the annual list which evaluates schools on their distance education MBA programs. The online program earned a score of 47 according to a set of widely accepted indicators of excellence, including admissions selectivity, reputation for excellence among peer institutions, and academic and career support services offered to students.

Created in 2015, the online MBA program at the Maine Business School is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, a standard of excellence achieved by fewer than 6 percent of business schools worldwide.

The program also is available on-campus where students take most courses in a traditional classroom and a few courses online. Ninety-five percent of students are already employed when they enroll in the online MBA program. These career professionals have the ability to complete their degree online in one year while interacting with students on campus or online. Classes are taught by world-class faculty who are active researchers and experts in their fields.

In 2017 the Guide to Online Schools named the University of Maine among the top 10 for best value online MBA program based on affordability and academic strength.

MBS is quickly gaining recognition as one of the premier business schools both nationally and internationally. U.S. News & World Report ranked the MBS among the top 200 business schools in the nation. Eduniversal listed the MBS among the ‘excellent’ business schools in a worldwide ranking that included only 132 schools from the U.S.
