Attn. Entrepreneurs: UB/Towson M.B.A. Lands Prestigious Ranking

Share the News


The UB/Towson joint M.B.A. program got some great ink in January when it was named #58 nationwide by reputation-maker U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of Best Online Programs — additionally, the UB/Towson M.B.A. is the only online M.B.A. program in the entire state to be rated by the publication.

What’s so special about their stay-at-home business degree?

Evidently, the teachers are stellar, the school’s resources top notch, and it’s not exactly a cakewalk to gain admission. U.S.N.W.R. (as I like to call them to save keys) considers three criteria before they tally their final grades: faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, and admissions selectivity.

Kudos keep coming. According to an official school press release, UB/Towson “scored in the top 15 percent of all online graduate business programs across the country.”

“We have always known that our online M.B.A. was strong in the national marketplace, and to learn that we ranked in the top third of all the accredited institutions that grant master’s degrees in business is an important validation for this excellent program,” said Darlene Smith, dean of UB’s Merrick School of Business.

“The U.S. News ranking is further affirmation of the high quality of the M.B.A. program and its mission to help students reach their goals through flexible formats,” added Shohreh Kaynama, dean of Towson’s College of Business and Economics.
