PULLMAN, Wash. – Three online programs at Washington State University have been ranked among the top in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

WSU’s online MBA program through the Carson College of Business ranked 13th, the university’s Global Campus ranked 20th for all undergraduate online degree programs, and the Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture’s Engineering Technology Management program was No. 30.

“Being recognized among the country’s top online programs is reflective of the hard work and initiative of the faculty, staff and students at WSU,” said Dave Cillay, vice president of WSU Academic Outreach & Innovation.  “We take great pride in our continuing effort to expand the reach of high‑quality, high‑engagement learning opportunities for students around the world.”

The magazine’s 2019 rankings of best online educational programs were released today.

For the online MBA rankings, the magazine evaluated engagement, student excellence, expert opinion, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technologies.

“Our online business programs are consistently praised by students throughout the Pacific Northwest and worldwide who seek an affordable, high quality, relevant business education,” said Chip Hunter, Carson College dean. “We are especially pleased to be recognized among the top 15 best programs, given this space is increasingly competitive.”

The rankings for online bachelor’s programs evaluated data collected from 367 schools in four categories: engagement, services and technologies, faculty credentials and training and expert opinion.

WSU’s Global Campus offers 15 undergraduate and 12 graduate degrees in many disciplines, as well as numerous minors and certificates. New degrees this year include a BA in History, a BA in Sociology, an MA in Health Communication and Promotion, and an MA in Music. Additional degree programs are currently in development.

WSU’s Engineering and Technology Management degree and certificate program serves engineers and technical professionals who aspire to advance their careers by rapidly gaining the leadership skills to effectively manage projects, people, organizations, and technology all while working full time.

“Our students are very enthusiastic about the quality of our faculty and the fact that our classes are taught in real time and are available recorded,” said Kim Zentz, director of the Engineering and Technology Management graduate program. “We are consistently told that the principles learned in class are applied on the job the very next day.”
