“Increasingly, students are looking for the flexibility of an online program, but they don’t want to sacrifice the high quality of a top university,” said Robert Mittelstaedt, the business school dean. “The W. P. Carey School was one of the first highly respected schools to get into the online arena – more than a decade ago -- and we offer the same stellar faculty and degree in our online program as we offer in all of our other highly ranked MBA programs.”
Last year, U.S. News & World Report issued an “Honor Roll” of the best 14 business graduate schools, in which the W. P. Carey School was named. The criteria for the new ranking include student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation and faculty credentials and training.
