PHOENIX -- The online graduate business program at Arizona State University's W.P. Carey School of Business has been ranked as the second-best in the nation.
ASU's program, which can take from 16 to 21 months to complete, has been utilized by thousands of students, including NFL kicker Billy Cundiff.
"Increasingly, people want the convenience of an online degree, but they don't want to sacrifice the high quality of a recognized, top university," explains Amy Hillman, dean of the W. P. Carey School of Business. "With the W. P. Carey School, you get the best of both worlds: the flexibility of an online format and the same stellar faculty members who teach in our other highly ranked graduate programs. The W. P. Carey School was one of the first highly respected business schools to launch online degrees more than a decade ago, and we use in-house course designers specializing solely in business classes."
ASU received a very good ranking for student engagement and admissions selectivity, but did not do so well in terms of student services and technology. However, few schools on the list received a good rating in that category.
The program was also ranked second last year.
ASU finished second only to Indiana University at Bloomington's program.
