Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSUGlobal.edu) is pleased to announce the U.S. News & World Report’s education ranking has listed CSU-Global programs among the best in online education. The university earned the ranking of #7 for Best Online Bachelor’s Programs, and was also acknowledged within the top 100 for Best Online Graduate Business Programs.
“Our mission is to provide quality and innovative learning opportunities to help working adults succeed in the global marketplace. We are excited to be acknowledged as leaders in online education and, more importantly, for the excellence of our academics and student support services,” said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, CSU-Global’s President.
This is the second year that U.S. News & World Report has provided rankings for online programs. Rankings are based on weighted factors that include graduation rates, academic quality, career services, and amount of debt after graduation—factors CSU-Global strongly supports and demonstrates. A student’s tuition rate at CSU-Global is guaranteed not to increase as long as they are actively enrolled, while the university’s career-relevant degree programs are focused on providing applicable knowledge and skills for professional success. Recent survey results from 2009-2010 alumni reported 95% of those who responded have paying jobs and 55% exceeded $55,000 in earned income per year.
“These rankings are indicative of the collective hard work and dedication our faculty and staff apply towards helping students achieve their goal of earning a degree. We are proud of our ability to provide the online tools our students need to leverage their education to achieve their personal and professional aspirations,” continued Dr. Takeda-Tinker. “We look forward to continuing to set the standards of online education.”
