The University of Tennessee at Martin has received recognition by onlinembareport.com for the high quality of its online Master of Business Administration program. UT Martin was ranked third in Tennessee behind the University of Memphis and UT Chattanooga and 18th in the South in the report. The website highlights the university for its small class sizes, collaborative projects, and leadership and global management-based curriculum.
The Online MBA Report serves as a starting point for prospective online MBA students across the country. The site generates roughly 25,000 user sessions per month, helping organize information so that students can help make individualized decisions about programs. In the past, admissions criteria, tuition costs and enrollment have been factors in the rankings. However, the 2022 rankings were based solely on reputation. More than 400 U.S.-based online MBA programs were evaluated, with UT Martin ranking among the top in each report.
UTM’s Online MBA Program is a high-quality, convenient, practitioner-focused program that is designed for nontraditional students, such as full-time employees. The program is cohort based, providing a series of four- to five-week courses taught by full-time faculty. Students traditionally complete the Online MBA Program in approximately 18 months.
UT Martin undergraduate and graduate business programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business – International, which is considered a gold standard accreditation in business education. More than 16,000 colleges and schools of business are located around the world, but only 6% of those schools are accredited by AACSB.
“When an academic program receives recognition, regionally and nationally, it will serve as an external validation of the quality of the program,” Dr. Tootoonchi said.
Dr. Ahmad Tootoonchi, College of Business and Global Affairs dean, is pleased with the rankings and what it says about the program. “When an academic program receives recognition, regionally and nationally, it will serve as an external validation of the quality of the program,” Dr. Tootoonchi said. “Further, students chose our MBA program not only for the quality of our AASCB-accredited program, but also for the caring attention they receive.”
