“I am incredibly proud of the recent announcement of the rankings for Best Online Business Programs. Our MBA, MSAE, and MAcc programs truly stand up against the best graduate business programs in the country.  These exceptional rankings are a true testament to the dedicated faculty, staff, and students that we have in the Nistler College of Business & Public Administration,” said Dean Amy Henley.

The business programs at the University of North Dakota hold AACSB International accreditation, which affirms the program’s high standards and faculty qualifications. Only 5 percent of business schools worldwide have achieved and maintained AACSB International accreditation.

“The Nistler College is delighted with the rankings from U.S. News & World Report for the 2020 Best Online Graduate Business Programs. As a College we are continuously striving for excellence with our graduate education curriculum and these rankings are a symbol of our advancements.
