Stanislaus State’s Online Master of Business Administration (OMBA) ranked top 20 in their respective categories by the bestaccreditedcolleges.org website.
The OMBA program was ranked No. 19 out of 49 programs.
The website says only programs at accredited, non-profit public and private schools are ranked, and rankings are determined using an objective, proprietary ranking system that combines current data points from the U.S. Department of Education with school-specific details. Its methodology considers accessibility, affordability, faculty and quality of instruction, financial aid awards and return on investment.
Word of the rankings was greeted enthusiastically in the College of Business Administration.
“We are honored to be included in this ranking,” said Terence Pitre, dean of the College of Business Administration. “It is evidence of the University’s ongoing commitment to providing students with a quality business education and in-demand skill set that will give them an edge in the competitive job market.”
