Niagara University’s online strategic management MBA degree program was ranked among the top 20 in the nation, according to MBACentral.org. At number 17, Niagara was the only Western New York institution included on the list.
“We at the Niagara University College of Business understand the needs of working professionals seeking to further their education,” said Mark Frascatore, dean. “To address these needs, we make our MBA as flexible as possible. We are proud of the content of our program, but that means nothing if it’s not accessible. Our online offerings are one important way we achieve that.”
Almost 550 distance MBA programs were analyzed based on factors including their strategy specific curriculum; the quality of classes, which took into account average class size; the availability of support services, defined as online-specific flexibility, accessibility, and support measures for online and nontraditional students; and affordability, which considered the average indebtedness of program graduates in the last calendar year and the percentage of graduates who needed to take on student loan debt.
MBACentral.org was founded in 2015 with the aim of providing an editorially unique b-school ranking and resource site.
In addition to the online strategic management program, Niagara University’s AACSB International-accredited College of Business Administration offers MBA concentrations in accounting, business administration, finance, global business and supply chain, healthcare administration, human resource management, international management, strategic management and strategic marketing management. Niagara also offers an M.S. program in finance.
