We are accredited by AACSB International - the premier global accrediting body for business schools. "AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation. AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools."
We are rated #55 in the top 100 in U.S. News and World Report's rankings of the Best Online MBA Programs for 2016. "These are the best online master's degree programs in business administration, based on factors such as admissions selectivity, reputation for excellence among peer institutions and academic and career support services offered to students."
Our programs are among the best educational values in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. Our 2015-2016 Tuition Rates have been released. Out of state students taking online courses pay just $1,437 in tuition per 3 credit course. Pennsylvania residents pay even less.
You may complete your entire degree in a 100% online class format, part time, one course at time, in less than two years. It is possible to complete your entire degree online in nine months as a full time student.
