(Jul. 28, 2016) — According to the Financial Times’ Online MBA Rankings, the D’Amore-McKim Northeastern University School of Business has one of the top 5 online MBA programs in the U.S.  The school has maintained a 3-year average at the #5 spot, coming at #3 in 2014, #4 in 2015, and #7 in the 2016 rankings. The average alumnus salary of the school’s graduates is more than $136,000, and the university has consistently ranked 2nd in both program delivery and online interaction. With a high graduation rate (95% of students earn their degree) and a 100% online curriculum, NEU has been offering sure-bet educations to students looking to improve their overall knowledge and experience in business administration without compromising their current schedules.

Corporate Residency Program Provides Real World Experience

The course at NEU is one of the only online MBA degree programs that provides a 6-month corporate residency program, during which the graduate is able to work as an intern at a real company. This unique perk has been shown to provide career accelerating benefits because it instantly gives the student a degree alongside a piece of experience to add to their resume. There’s also the possibility that they could earn a long-term position at the company they’re partnered with during the residency program, which may even be an international company, thereby allowing them the opportunity to travel and work overseas.

Accommodating Busy Schedules

With a fully online course curriculum and a 3-year average time of completion with up to 5 years to complete it, graduates are able to work at their own pace from anywhere there’s an internet connection. With an international mobility rank of 8, the online university allows students to log in and work from anywhere in the world, and a significant percentage of its graduates are able to find international jobs outside the U.S. using their degrees. The fact that the schooling operates around the student’s schedule makes NEU’s online MBA degree an incredibly appealing option for people who already have jobs and businesses to manage but would like to expand their education in their free time.

Finish in 2 Years and Choose a Dual Degree Option

The AACSB online MBA program at NEU also offers students the chance to earn two degrees at once – an MBA along with a Master of Science in Finance. Furthermore, the course curriculum can be customized by choosing from 8 concentrations, each of which is tailored to focus on specific topics depending on the student’s intended career path.

Accredited by the Best

Northeastern University is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, which is the highest level of certification a business school can have. Furthermore, they’re regionally accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, making them a trustworthy organization that will likely continue to be ranked highly among online MBA providers.
