The U.S. News & World Report recently released its 2016 Best Online Graduate Business Programs rankings. The Supply Chain Management program at the University of San Diego School of Business once again ranked 9th in the nation. The same program ranked 9th in the nation in 2015 as well.
The ranking looked at the best online master’s in business degree programs, based on factors such as level of accreditation, reputation for excellence among peer institutions, and academic and career services offered to students. USD received a 100/100 in student engagement (33% of the total score) and 82/100 in faculty credentials and training (13.5% of the total score).
