Jacksonville University programs in business and nursing have again landed on three prestigious lists from the Princeton Review and CEO Magazine, ranking them amongst the best programs of their kind.
The Davis College of Business appeared on both lists. CEO Magazine ranked the Master of Business Administration, Executive MBA, online MBA and Doctor of Business Administration on its lists of best programs, which incorporates colleges and universities from across the world.
The Princeton Review recognized the Davis College on its Online MBA program list.
This marks the 10th time Jacksonville University has been on the CEO Magazine lists, demonstrating the long-standing quality of its programs within the Davis College.
“We are honored to see our graduate degrees recognized once again as some of the best in the world,” said Dr. Barbara Ritter, dean of the Davis College of Business. “Our programs continue to provide a high-quality educational experience where students can thrive and enrich their own career and personal goals.”
The Princeton Review also ranked the Online Master of Science in Nursing on its Best Online Nursing School programs.
While the Keigwin School of Nursing’s online programs have been recognized before, most recently on the U.S. News & World Report list of top Online Nursing Master’s programs, this marks its first appearance on The Princeton Review list.
“This recognition for our online MSN program goes to show that the Keigwin School of Nursing can deliver the same high-quality education both online and in the classroom,” said Dr. Leigh Hart, associate dean and professor in the Keigwin School of Nursing. “Students in our program don’t have to sacrifice quality for convenience.”
In determining rankings, CEO Magazine weighed the quality of faculty the highest, followed by international diversity, class size, faculty to student ratio, international exposure, work experience and professional development, amongst others.
“We are proud of the contributions of our faculty in enriching the quality of the educational experience for students,” Dr. Ritter said. “You will be hard pressed to find a faculty more committed to student success than in the Davis College of Business.”
The Princeton Review’s online MBA rankings took into account the program’s career outcomes, admissions selectivity and student input on the rigor of courses, strength of the teaching staff and how the program met their expectations. The Princeton Review didn’t provide criteria for the online nursing school list.
