Unique features of the program include a one-week residency that allows students to connect with faculty, staff and peers; international immersion opportunities and a capstone project.
"Our position on this list, amidst the leading business schools in the country, is a testament to the high-quality, rigorous programs we offer," said Venky Venkatachalam, Ph.D., dean of the Beacom School of Business. "We are proud to improve our ranking and maintain our position on this prestigious list. My sincere thanks and appreciation go to our faculty, staff, students, alumni and USD leadership for making this ranking possible."
The Princeton Review chose the 25 online MBA programs and tallied its ranking list based on data from the company's 2018–2019 surveys of administrators and students at more than 110 business schools offering online MBAs. The criteria focused on five core areas: academics, selectivity, faculty, technical platforms, and career outcomes.
"These consistent rankings are a testament to USD’s commitment to providing a high-quality, robust educational experience to our online students at the Beacom School of Business,” said USD President Sheila K. Gestring. "Not only are these programs offering a wide variety of students the ability to further their education, it is also actively benefitting the workforce across our state and nation."
