Online degree programs at IU's Kelley School of Business ranked No. 1 by U.S. News and World Report
No. 1 rankings highlight the school's commitment to students seeking a traditional MBA degree and those who seek an MS degree
Two programs at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business are No. 1 in U.S. News and World Report's rankings of the Best Online Education Programs, remaining at the top of more than 200 graduate business offerings nationwide.
This was the first year that U.S. News has published two business rankings: one of online MBA programs and one of all other online master's programs in business, in areas such as finance, accounting or risk management. Kelley received a perfect score of 100 in both rankings.
Kelley School Dean Idalene “Idie” Kesner said the two No. 1 rankings support the Kelley School’s commitment to excellence in all of its degree programs.
"We place the same emphasis on our online programs as we do for our in-residence programs -- the same world-class professors, the same emphasis on leadership, and the same emphasis on student collaboration and global experiences," said Kesner, who is also the Frank P. Popoff Chair of Strategic Management at Kelley. "We saw the need for online education two decades ago and have been building successful programs for the past 16 years that others look to for best practices."
