Online programs receive high ranks


Three online programs from Webster University have been deemed among the best in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report, a digital publication that ranks universities, hospitals and offers consumer advice.

U.S. News & World Report announced their 2015 rankings on Jan. 7. Webster was listed in the categories of Best Online Graduate Business Programs, Best Online Graduate Education Programs and Best Online MBA Programs.

Although Webster’s online programs ranked no higher than 67th, their rankings in the state were much higher, all within the top 10. According to Webster Today, the online business programs were ranked fourth, the online education programs were second and the online MBA programs were seventh.

The rankings are determined through surveys and data received from the universities, according to U.S. News & World Report’s website. The rankings factor in different variables such as student engagement and professor qualifications.

U.S. News & World Report will publish the rankings later this year.
