Whitman School’s Online MBA Program Named #10 Globally by Financial Times
The Martin J. Whitman School of Management’s online MBA program has been ranked #10 in the Financial Times’ 2017 ranking of all online MBA programs worldwide, #6 in the nation. The full rankings, released this week, are published at http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/rankings, along with the full methodology.
The Whitman School partners with 2U Inc. (NASDAQ: TWOU) to administer its online MBA program, MBA@Syracuse. The program includes a diverse student body of more than 1,000 students, hailing from 43 states and 10 countries.
MBA@Syracuse allows students from anywhere in the world to take part in the highly regarded Whitman MBA program —without having to relocate or put their careers on hold. Classes take place on a live, online platform taught by Whitman’s award-winning faculty, connecting students with the comprehensive education and experience they need to succeed in today’s competitive business environment.
“Through MBA@Syracuse, we’re using an enhanced technology platform to extend our program beyond campus,” says Amy McHale, assistant dean for masters programs. “Our enhanced approach allows us to both attract an increasingly diverse group of students to MBA@Syracuse, as well as connect new students face-to-face with Syracuse alumni on the technology platform well before the start of class.”
MBA@Syracuse graduates receive the same Whitman degree as on-campus students, completing a 54-credit-hour program with 36 core course credits and 18 elective credits. Upon completion, the first graduates are expected to apply their education to a variety of industries, ranging from financial services and consulting, pharmaceuticals and health care, media and entertainment, government and nonprofit, and more. Students also participate in multi-day domestic and international residencies throughout their program, which offer students the chance to meet classmates and professors face-to-face for workshops and networking experiences.
