The University of Maryland ranks among the nation’s best online MBA programs, coming in at No. 10.

That’s according to new rankings from U.S. News & World Report of the best online bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in a variety of fields. The rankings measure only programs that are designed to be administered online, not those that are temporarily virtual because of the coronavirus pandemic — though, industry observers expect that demand to rise as a result of the crisis.

In the online MBA ranking, UMd. tied with Lehigh University, the University of Arizona, the University of Mississippi, University of Washington and the University of Wisconsin in the No. 10 spot.

This year marks the first time U.S. News published a ranking of online bachelor’s degree programs in business.

The rankings are based on indicators such as student services and technology, faculty credentials and student engagement, using data collected from each institution. Only degree-granting programs offered primarily online by regionally accredited institutions were considered, and the programs that score the highest applied educational best practices specific for distance learners.
