Lisle, IL (PRWEB) November 24, 2014
Benedictine University is proud to announce that its online MBA program was recently ranked 17th in the nation by GraduatePrograms.com. The Online Business Graduate Rankings are based on student-submitted scores in 15 categories, including academic competitiveness, education quality, faculty accessibility and support, graduate program value, quality of networking and diversity.
“As with any program of study, the personal rewards and benefits arise from the individual's level of commitment and involvement,” said Kawone Harris, MBA Class of 2015 student. “Benedictine requires that students become fully engaged. Consequently, the benefits increase. The online learning environment allows more thoughtful consideration and discussion of case studies among students. The instructors and staff are excellent and supportive.”

About the Award
GraduatePrograms.com’s Online Business Graduate Rankings are based solely on ratings and reviews from current and recent graduate students. Each school’s graduate programs are rated on a scale of 1 to 10 stars (1 being the worst, 10 being the best). Students provide ratings on 15 categories, such as academic competitiveness, career support, financial aid and quality of network.
Rankings are determined by calculating the average score for each program based on the 15 ranking categories. Program scores are then compared across all ranked schools to develop a final ranking for that graduate program. A given graduate program is not ranked until a minimum threshold of graduate student surveys is completed. Learn more about the rankings criteria at http://www.graduateprograms.com.
