Jun. 10, 2010



FLORENCE, Ala. – The University of North Alabama’s online MBA program was recently ranked sixth in the nation by consumer watchdog and advocacy group GetEducated.com LLC. The ranking was based on a survey of 90 regionally accredited business schools that offer 250 distance MBA degrees.

“This ranking is a real mark of distinction for us,” said Dr. Kerry Gatlin, dean of the UNA College of Business. “It is a priority of ours not only to offer such an excellent academic degree as our MBA, but also to make it an excellent value – to deliver more than your money’s worth.”

According to GetEducated.com, the average cost for an online master’s degree in business is $22,924, while GetEducated.com’s top 10 ranked online MBAs are all under $14,000. The UNA online MBA is $10,923 for both in-state and out-of-state students.

The online MBA at UNA offers concentrations in information systems, international business, healthcare management and professional. A finance concentration will also be offered soon.
