GetEducated.com recently ranked the University of Houston-Victoria Global Master of Business Administration fifth in the nation and the Strategic MBA 25th on its Online MBA "Best Buys" list.
The national organization rates online college programs, including the MBA list that focused on UHV and other schools accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International. Less than 5 percent of business schools around the world have earned the accreditation from AACSB International.
"Our school continues to strive to offer quality degree programs for reasonable prices, and this ranking confirms that we are meeting our goals," said Farhang Niroomand, dean of the UHV School of Business Administration. "With two of our online programs making the GetEducated.com list, we find ourselves not only among the elite in accreditation but also in affordability."
The average cost of an online business master's degree is $37,011, according to GetEducated.com. The UHV Global MBA costs about $11,400, and the Strategic MBA costs about $18,200 for Texas residents. This does not include financial aid, which often reduces actual out-of-pocket expenses.
The GetEducated.com Online MBA "Best Buy" ranking is based on a national survey of 93 regionally accredited universities that offer 147 different online MBA degrees. The survey covered the major areas of business administration. The list is updated every two years.
GetEducated.com first recognized UHV in 2004. It currently ranks the business school's Bachelor of Business Administration program first in Texas and eighth in the U.S. as a "Best Buy."
This is the fourth consecutive time the Global MBA has made the list since the degree was first offered in 2006. The program teaches students how to understand and manage cultural differences in a global workforce and apply knowledge of theories, models and tools to solve global business and managerial issues.
The online Strategic MBA made the list for the sixth consecutive time. The program uses a cross-disciplinary approach to complex business problems and incorporates real-world, applied learning through discussion of current business issues, case studies, simulations and team projects.
