Kennesaw State University’s online MBA program was recently named one of the best by U.S. News & World Report.

If you’re looking to dig into some numbers during your off-time by enrolling in an online MBA program, you can’t do much better than Kennesaw State University.

That’s according to U.S. News & World Report, which released its 2018 national ranking of such programs Tuesday.

KSU’s Master of Business Administration program ranked No. 19, tied with Lehigh University and Pepperdine University. That makes it the tops in Georgia.

To create its ranking, U.S. News explained that it weighed five factors: student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credentials/training and student services/technology.

Each program was then given a score out of 100 — KSU earned a 76. Temple University’s program earned a perfect 100 and got the No. 1 spot.

“We are excited to see our online MBA program recognized as a Top 20 program in the nation,” Kathy Schwaig, dean of the Coles College of Business, said in a news release. “The ranking reflects the outstanding achievements of our committed students, talented faculty, and devoted MBA leadership and staff.”

The university also had other programs that earned spots on different U.S. News rankings, including graduate information technology and graduate engineering programs.
