U.S. News & World Report ranks CCB online bachelor’s in business programs in top six percent of U.S. business schools
The U.S. News & World Report recently released rankings for 2023 online programs, naming four Charlton College of Business (CCB) and eight UMass Dartmouth programs among the highest ranked in the U.S.
Charlton’s online bachelor’s in business programs ranked #12 out of 214 qualifying universities, and second among all New England institutions. This marks an 18-spot leap from 2022 and places CCB within the top six percent of U.S. undergraduate online business schools.
"This recognition by U.S. News & World Report serves as strong support of CCB’s vision to be a renowned business school, and is incredibly inspirational for our college," said John Williams, Dean of the Charlton College of Business.
Charlton's online graduate programs also scored high, with the Online MBA program ranked #102 out of 336 eligible programs, and Online Master’s in Business that are not MBA programs ranking #63 out of 224 programs. CCB placed #70 for MBA programs for Veterans, a distinction for universities that help reduce the cost of the program for those who have served.
"CCB's mission is to offer an accessible, affordable, and excellent business education," said Dean Williams. "We consider it incumbent upon us to provide the highest quality online programs to a wider audience that cannot, for numerous reasons, attend our campus."
According to the U.S. News & World Report, graduate program rankings are based on engagement, expert opinion, faculty credentials and training, services and technologies, and student excellence. Only programs accredited by the AACSB, the “gold standard” for business schools, are eligible for graduate school rankings. Bachelor's program rankings consider engagement, services and technologies, faculty credentials and training, and peer assessment.
