Paul College offers its online MBA degree program with an information systems and business analytics specialization for students seeking to advance their skills in this area. The program emphasizes a balance of theoretical and practical knowledge in business administration and the application of information systems. Students enhance their ability to adapt to and solve unique problems in business utilizing technology and data, to manage information systems and teams, and apply business analytics for growth and change.
According to Victoria Parker, associate dean for graduate education and faculty administration in the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, UNH’s online MBA stands out in two areas: the strength of its faculty and the quality of the student experience.
“Our online MBA program is recognized as a stellar program due to the strength of the faculty and curriculum, which are the same as in the full-time and part-time on-campus programs. Yet, we also realize that even for the most experienced faculty member, teaching online requires new skills and techniques,” Parker said. “The college and university have made continuous learning and improvement in this area a priority, and our faculty consistently excel in delivering high-quality online learning experiences.”
UNH Paul College’s online MBA program also was ranked for the second consecutive year in among the top 100 nationally and #1 in northern New England by U.S. News & World Report.
