UMaine MBA program named a 2019 Best Online Program by U.S. News & World Report
The University of Maine’s Online MBA has been named one of the top 100 Best Online Programs by U.S. News & World Report.
UMaine’s 2019 ranking is 41 places higher than last year.
“We are excited that our Online MBA has broken into the top 100 best programs. This is an incredible affirmation of the high-quality MBA that we deliver,” says J. Michael Weber, dean of UMaine’s Graduate School of Business.
“We attribute this significant increase in our ranking to the efforts of our faculty, who excel at delivering industry-relevant content and experiential learning opportunities for our students,” says Weber, “and to our alumni, who have been more than willing to provide employment and outcome data regarding their success after graduation. The improved ranking was also influenced by significant increases in average GMAT scores, undergraduate GPAs and years of work experience for recent applicants.”
The 30-credit program is offered 100 percent digitally through UMaineOnline, the University of Maine’s digital learning program. UMaineOnline collaborates with academic departments and UMaine Graduate School to provide online graduate professional education that addresses the need for innovative, relevant and high-quality programming of global impact and local relevance, preparing students for rewarding 21st-century careers.
