Creighton Online Programs Rank in Top 20

Several Creighton online programs were ranked among the top 20 in the nation for their respective categories by U.S. News & World Report’s 2015 Best Online Programs. The rankings evaluated more than 1,000 distance education programs for bachelor’s and graduate degrees in business, education, nursing, engineering and computer technology.

The Creighton online program categories recognized are: No. 16 in Best Online Bachelor’s Programs (B.S. in Leadership); No. 12 in Best Online Graduate Business Programs (Master of Business Intelligence and Analytics and Master of Security Analysis and Portfolio Management); and No. 11 in Best Online Graduate Education Programs (M.S. in Educational Leadership and M.S. in School Counseling and Preventive Mental Health).

“This recognition is a testament not only to the growing prestige of our online offerings but also to our faculty and staff’s commitment and diligence in making these programs top-tier academic initiatives,” said Provost Edward O’Connor, Ph.D.

In the rankings, only degree-granting programs offering courses entirely online were considered. U.S. News & World Report factored in reputation, student engagement, faculty credentials and training, student services, technology and other criteria to determine its rankings. Peer review data based on schools’ evaluations of each other was also included.
