The University of Scranton and Washington State lead an eclectic list
The report, which covers only U.S. based schools, ranks online programs in four categories: admissions selectivity, faculty credentials, student engagement, and student services/ technology.
The categorical rankings provide for an eclectic list of U.S programs: North Carolina's Gardner-Webb University tops the student services list, while the University of Scranton leads the pack in terms of student engagement; Washington State University takes the honors for admissions selectivity; and Arkansas State University at Jonesboro is number one in faculty training.
U.S. News also includes an "honor roll" ranking, which is a list of 14 MBA programs that perform well over all four categories. This crème de la crème list includes programs like Arizona State University, Florida Institue of Technology, and George Washington University.
