Vermont Business Magazine Comprehensive guide to online MBA programs, Online MBA Today (http://www.onlinembatoday.com/) has published a new ranking of the 50 best online MBA programs in Human Resource Management (http://www.onlinembatoday.com/rankings/best-online-human-resource-management-mba/) and Champlain College in Burlington was one of the top.
For this ranking, Online MBA Today began with a list of 380 online Master's of Business Administration programs. Each was vetted according to the quality of its business management foundation and whether or not it had a concentrated curriculum in human resource management. Each program was then ranked based on the following five factors: estimated tuition cost; regional and business accreditations; estimated early career salary; prestige; and overall graduation rates. The data for this ranking was taken from the most recent and publicly available sources, including PayScale, US News and World Report, the Princeton Review, the Financial Times, Quacquarelli Symonds, and the National Center for Education Statistics. Data was gathered for each degree, weighted equally, and averaged to find the top online MBA programs in human resource management.
An online MBA in human resource management can be a great asset to any prospective human resource professional. Flexible programs like those in this ranking can allow a professional to gain the critical education to advance his or her career while gaining the important experience needed for most HR roles. Managers and professionals in the human resource field play a vital role in the health and success of an organization.
