Walsh University’s online Master of Business Administration (MBA) program has been recognized nationally as a 2015 Best Online Program by U.S. News & World Report and as one of the Top 50 accelerated programs in the country by Affordable Colleges Online.

Offered through The DeVille School of Business, Walsh’s MBA is ranked No. 101 on U.S. News' overall roster of the nation's best online MBA programs and is the highest ranked local university in the five county region of Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, and Wayne.  In addition, Affordable Colleges Online recently recognized Walsh in two categories as one of the nation’s Top 50 accelerated and no GMAT required online MBA programs for 2015.

"The Walsh MBA program offers students the opportunity to earn their degrees from an accredited university who understands the needs of the working adult," said DeVille School of Business Dean Dr. Carole Mount. "These recognitions validate all of the hard work that has gone into the development and implementation of our online program by the dedicated members of Walsh’s faculty, staff and administration."

U.S. News and World Report evaluated online MBA programs from schools across the country on five general categories: student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technology.  

"In the competitive environment of online education it’s gratifying to be recognized nationally for our academic excellence," said Dr. Michael Petrochuk, Director of Walsh’s MBA Program. "Our curriculum provides a superb academic foundation that is flexible enough to respond to today’s ever-changing business environment, while continuing to provide students with a top-notch education that is relevant and affordable."

Affordable Colleges Online began in 2011 with the mission to provide strategies and information about pursuing an affordable higher education. After examining hundreds of schools, Walsh University was featured for its outstanding low cost, quality programming.
