Other good news for FAU is the College of Business tied at 32 for Best Online Graduate Programs excluding MBA in the US News and World Report Rankings. The rankings are based on faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, student engagement, and admissions selectivity. The area with the highest rankings was faculty credentials and training.  The faculty credentials and training ratings combine the academic credentials with the trainings instructors receive to teach distance learners. Those of us at the Center for eLearning know the dedication of the faculty to provide high quality distance learning courses for the students at FAU. This ranking validates you and the standards you set. Congratulations to the College of Business!
