Georgia WebMBA Ranked Among Top in World by CEO Magazine



COLUMBUS, Ga. --- The Georgia WebMBA program, offered at Columbus State University, now ranks 12th in the world and 5th in North America according to CEO Magazine’s 2016 Global MBA Rankings.

"The WebMBA is highly regarded for both the quality of the academic program and the outstanding student services we provide,” said Linda Hadley, dean of CSU’s Turner College of Business, where the WebMBA is housed. “Columbus State University commits to invite only its highest performing faculty members to teach in the program and to assign support staff dedicated to student success."

The 2016 rankings by CEO Magazine evaluated more than 100 MBA programs across North America, Europe and Australia. The rankings are designed with future students in mind, and examine learning environment, class sizes, tuition and fees, faculty, delivery methods and international diversity. Georgia’s program shares the honor with some of the world’s top business schools, including SBS Swiss Business School, Pepperdine University and European University.

“While rankings are not our goal, they are the result of excellence in curriculum, highly qualified and productive faculty, and staff that continue to innovate and improve the program,” said Faye McIntyre, lead dean of the Georgia WebMBA. “Faculty receive special training in online teaching to translate classroom skills to the virtual format.”

Since its inception, the Georgia WebMBA program has graduated more than 49 cohorts of students, with an average class size of 30. The virtual classroom reflects real-world working environments with a diverse group of students from different backgrounds and areas of business.

Students may begin the five-term program in either January or August. For more information about Columbus State University’s Georgia WebMBA, visit https://gradschool.columbusstate.edu/cobcs/business/onlinemba.php.
