U.S. News & World Report has ranked UNH’s online MBA program #51 in the nation. Run by the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, the program climbed 34 spots from last year. This is the third year in a row UNH’s online MBA has been ranked among the top 100 programs.
UNH is the only top-100 program in New Hampshire and tied for the #51 spot with the University of Massachusetts Lowell, Colorado State University, Florida international University and Rutgers University.
A distinct feature of UNH’s online MBA program is that students also can take face-to-face courses at night at either the Durham or Manchester campuses.
“The fact that we improved by 34 spots in the ranking is something we are particularly proud of,” said Paul College Dean Deborah Merrill-Sands. “As a college we have made a commitment to developing a high quality online learning experience and we are seeing that pay off.”
Paul College’s online MBA program has seen steady growth over the past three years as a greater number of students are choosing this option to get their master’s degree in business administration.
“Working professionals have many online MBA programs to choose from, but Paul College stands out in three areas,” said Victoria Parker, associate dean for graduate education and faculty administration. “We are the only online MBA program in New Hampshire to hold AACSB accreditation—the highest accreditation for business schools worldwide. The same accomplished faculty who teach in the full-time and part-time evening programs teach our online students, and the students in the online program are experienced professionals who enrich class discussions and project-based work.”
U.S. News ranks online MBA programs in five categories that contribute to the quality of those programs. These include the ability of students to engage with faculty and classmates, the strength of the student body, peer reputation, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technologies.
A distinct feature of UNH’s online MBA program is that students also can take face-to-face courses at night at either the Durham or Manchester campuses, including hybrid courses that combine both online and face-to-face learning experiences.
