Boise State MBA Program Ranked Once Again: “Best Online MBA Programs” 2016

January 20, 2016  / 

Categories:  Home page news stories

Boise State University has been known for the use of innovation and creativity to best meet the needs of its students – and it shows. According to the U.S. News and World Report, Boise State’s Online MBA program was rated among the “Best Online MBA Programs.” The program is better than ever and continues to improve every year through the efforts of the faculty and staff at Boise State.

The program began in the fall of 2013 and was developed to provide the best graduate education for a new segment of students. Brian O’Morrow, director of the online MBA program, said the program was developed to reach high tech, enthusiastic professionals seeking an affordable and convenient online MBA program.

“Online students receive the same quality education that on-campus students receive,” O’Morrow said, “while having the flexibility to compete the coursework in as little as 12 months.”

Through completion, students gain new insight and creativity on how to transform business practices and take control of their bright futures.

Ranked on the coveted “Best Online MBA Programs” in 2015 and 2016, Boise State’s online program continues to prove itself among the best in the country. This year Boise State’s online MBA program ranked #79, up from #97 last year,  among institutions across the nation.

Former Dean, Patrick Shannon, explained one of the many reasons for its recognition: “All of Boise State’s graduate business degrees are accredited by AACSB International — the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the gold standard of accreditation. Boise State’s is the only graduate business program in the Treasure Valley to achieve this distinction.”
