Business Programs Receive Multiple National Rankings  


August 29, 2019— Haile/US Bank College of Business (COB) undergraduate and graduate programs received multiple national rankings for providing an accessible online education. 

NKU’s online bachelor’s degree in Business Administration ranks second in the country by Bachelor’s Degree Center (BDC), a free online resource to help students find affordable degrees. NKU received the ranking for affordable tuition, along with their accreditations and fully online and hybrid course offerings. 

BDC states in its review of NKU, “For adults who want to move into marketing, an online marketing degree makes a lot of sense. Northern Kentucky University’s bachelor’s in marketing online degree program is one of the best in the South.”  On the graduate side, NKU’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program also received recognition. College Consensus, a new college ranking website, lists NKU sixth in the nation for both best online MBA program and best no-GMAT online MBA program. College Consensus ranks programs on their affordability, convenience and reputation.

“The online MBA is designed to set up graduates for successful improvement in personal and professional goals in a multitude of career opportunities throughout our nation and the world. Also, the affordability of this degree produces a high return on investment,” College Consensus states in its NKU profile. 

NKU revamped its Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in 2017. The improved program is designed for working professionals to enhance their careers by utilizing new business topics in a fast-paced, customizable way.

“These rankings show we offer a high-achieving business education. Our programs integrate hands on learning with innovative mindsets to succeed in today’s business world. I’m proud that our college continues to set the standard across the board,” said Dr. Hassan HassabElnaby, the new dean of Haile/US Bank College of Business. 

COB is currently taking applications for both undergraduate and graduate degree seekers.
