U.S. News & World Report recognizes Georgia Southern business programs

Georgia Southern University’s online programs in the Parker College of Business were recognized among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, a recognized leader in college and graduate school rankings. 

The Parker College of Business’ online MBA tied for the 59th spot on the Best Online MBA Programs list and also tied for the 37th spot on the Best Online MBA Programs for Veterans list. 

U.S. News also ranked the college’s online non-MBA business programs — Master of Accounting and Master of Science in Applied Economics —  No. 50 in the nation. 

The publication ranked more than 1,200 online programs evaluating only regionally accredited institutions offering mostly or entirely online programs. The ranking used five categories: engagement, expert opinion, faculty credentials and training, student excellence and student services and technologies. All programs within the Parker College of Business are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which is the gold standard of business school accreditation.
