DENTON (UNT), Texas -- U.S. News and World Report has named the University of North Texas College of Business online Master of Business Administration degree one of the nation's best: UNT was ranked No. 15 out of 228 schools listed. The 2016 rankings were published Tuesday (Jan. 12).

"This national recognition highlights our commitment at UNT to proving students in our online courses with the same quality learning experiences that students in our face-to-face courses receive," said Marilyn Wiley, dean of the College of Business. "Today's students look toward online MBA programs for the flexible schedules and costs savings. We provide that, as well as faculty, coaches and advisors who work in tandem to ready students for leadership roles in ever-changing business climates."

For this year's list, UNT was ranked in five categories: student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technology.

The online MBA program at UNT offers concentrations in marketing, strategic management and finance, as well as the new focus in organizational behavior and human resource management, which started this fall. Classes are available in flexible formats to meet the needs of working professionals, and the UNT College of Business is fully accredited by the Association to Advance College Schools of Business-International, the premier accrediting agency for colleges of business throughout the world.
