Staff Report

MOREHEAD – Morehead State University’s online Master of Business Administration program has been named among the Best Online MBA Programs in the nation for 2016 by Affordable Colleges Foundation.

“The stigma surrounding online programs is fading in the job market and more employers are hiring candidates with online MBA degrees,” said Dan Schuessler, CEO and Founder of “Which means these institutions are preparing the next generation to be an integral part of our workforce.”

MSU ranked 40th in the nation.

In order for universities to qualify for this ranking they must be public, not for profit, institutions and offer at least five online master’s degrees.

Qualifying schools were then evaluated based on these criteria: must be a public or private, not-for-profit institution; must offer at least one fully-online bachelor’s degree program; academic and counseling services; job placement for graduates.

MSU’s MBA degree program’s mission is to provide quality online educational opportunities in business for degree and course completion, designed for individuals seeking to improve their management success and focused on working managers.
