The University of Nebraska–Lincoln MBA program has been ranked number one in the Big Ten among online programs by Affordable Colleges Online. Ranked 11 overall, UNL was recognized for being “at the top of its class among national universities.”
The online program, which was ranked 17 out of 148 programs by U.S. News & World Report earlier in the year, was an early adopter in online education. The College of Business Administration has made it a priority to give students flexible options for completing their degree.
