November 05, 2012
The consumer education research website GetEducated.com has listed the Wayne State University School of Business Administration among the top 60 “Best Buys” for online MBA programs nationwide that are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business—AACSB International. The website provides “fact-based” and “data driven” rankings as a service for the public to locate the best online degrees based on a variety of factors.
GetEducated.com surveys and ranks more than 3,000 online degree programs. The programs listed have been independently reviewed and cost students less than the national average. WSU’s ranking was determined based on surveys of 85 business schools nationally, all of which are accredited by AACSB.
GetEducated.com features a profile for each of the schools listed, which highlights the school’s strengths and weaknesses through the use of “report cards.” The website provides grades for each school based on several criteria including affordability, student satisfaction and public perception. In the category of student satisfaction, WSU’s online MBA received an A grade.
“We are pleased to know that others recognize our commitment to providing our students with the very best education possible, including online formats and options,” said Margaret Williams, interim dean of WSU’s business school.
“We aim to provide quality learning opportunities for our students while keeping their education affordable,” she said. “As we launch our new exclusively online MBA format that allows out-of-state students to pay in-state tuition, we expect to provide value to even more students around the globe.”
WSU and Central Michigan University are the only two Michigan-based schools on the list. For more on Wayne State’s online MBA rating visit the GetEducated.com website.
