Business program continues to climb in annual rankings
by Adam Grybowski
Rider University moved up six spots in this year's U.S. News & World Report rankings for best online master's programs in business. The University ranked at No. 120 in the nation, with its online Master of Business Administration program ranking at No. 193.
Now in its 12th year, U.S. News Best Online Programs evaluated more than 1,600 online bachelor's and master's degree programs using metrics specific to online learning, including student engagement, faculty credentials, and services and technologies.
“The continued improvement in our rankings reflect the persistent efforts across our University to offer students the highest-quality education that helps them achieve their goals,” says Dr. DonnaJean Fredeen, Rider’s provost and senior vice president for Academic and Student Affairs.
U.S. News & World Report is the global leader in quality rankings. Its Best Online Programs rankings only include degree-granting programs offered primarily online by regionally accredited institutions. Rider’s Norm Brodsky College of Business is among the only 2% of schools worldwide that hold dual AACSB accreditation in both accounting and business.
“The rankings and related resources U.S. News offers will help equip students with data to make choices that align with their unique needs, paving the way for educational and professional fulfillment,” says LaMont Jones, managing editor for education at U.S. News.
Rider is regularly recognized for its high-quality academic offerings. Last year, Rider was honored as a best college by The Princeton Review, and U.S. News recognized Rider as one of the Best Regional Universities (North) and ranked the University No. 8 in Best Value Schools, a 16-spot jump from the previous year.
