William & Mary achieves impressive U.S. News & World Report rankings for two online graduate business programs
Two online graduate programs in William & Mary’s Raymond A. Mason School of Business have risen in their rankings in the 2021 U.S. News & World Report Best Online Programs rankings, released today. The W&M online MBA now ranks number 26 among online MBA programs in the U.S., up from number 28 in 2020. The online Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) ranks number 41, up from number 104 in 2020. Both programs achieve high rankings with veterans as well, with the online MBA coming in at number 32 and the online MSBA at number 28. These higher rankings are reflective of the quality and impact of these programs, as well as their strength to stand out in a crowded online graduate business marketplace.
“We are proud of the exceptional quality of the online graduate business programs our faculty have built with Everspring,” said Associate Dean and Executive Director of the Center for Online Learning at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business, Pam Suzadail. “These programs provide learning experiences that are both relevant and practical for students pursuing graduate business degrees today, without sacrificing the collaboration and connection that is so vital to student success.”
The small class sizes and collaborative nature of the programs provide online students with the interactions and connections they would find in an on-campus graduate program, but with the flexibility and accessibility made possible in an online environment. Program outcomes include a 99% term-to-term retention rate and a 95% student satisfaction rating. William and Mary’s advancement in these nationally significant rankings is a testament to the focus on excellence that the Raymond A. Mason School of Business has placed on delivering a best-in-class online graduate degree experience. The U.S. News & World Report rankings demonstrate the commitment to continuously improving the W&M digital academic experience and providing exceptional value for students.
