DENTON (UNT), Texas The University of North Texas College Of Business is being praised for its online Masters of Business Administration degree program. The group "GetEducated.com" has recognized UNT's program as a "Top 25 Best Buy" among 130 programs surveyed nationwide.

Dr. Kathleen Cooper, dean of UNT's College of Business, says, "The ranking of the UNT College of Business Administration's on-line MBA is positive recognition for our program. We are constantly improving our offerings to our students in order to best meet their needs. I feel we are successful at this and it's rewarding to receive acknowledgment of our efforts."

In 1989, GetEducated.com, LLC designed and directed Americas first online counseling center for adult learners seeking accredited online college degrees. Today , they operate the only clearinghouse in the USA dedicated exclusively to showcasing accredited online degrees. They have been featured in the New York Times, Forbes, Fortune, US News & World Report, CNN and CBS News, among others.

Cooper says, "The ‘Best Buy' designation indicates our MBA program has been found to offer a high-quality distance degree to a national audience at tuition rates well below the national average. With this ranking we are entitled to use the Seal of Approval logo on our website and in our outreach materials beginning February 2006 through February 2008." UNT is one of four Texas universities to receive the "Best Buy" designation.

The College of Business Administration at UNT has been offering distance-delivered courses since 1985. Dr. Derrick D'Souza, Associate Dean for Graduate Programs at UNT, says, "We began web-based course delivery in 1998. Our web-based delivery capabilities have expanded over the years, thanks to the creation of the Center for Distributed learning (CDL) on the UNT campus to coordinate and foster distance education activities." UNT currently offers more web-based courses than any other university in the region, with more than 6,000 students enrolled in on-line classes.
