FLINT — Kettering University’s online Master of Business Administration (MBA) program has recently been named No. 48 among the nation’s best by BusinessStudent.com, a highly accredited business education platform.
To determine program rankings, BusinessStudent compared the costs, accreditation, acceptance rates, and other factors of over 200 programs to conclude which schools provided the best fit for students. Kettering’s affordability and overall performance led to BusinessStudent naming the program “as the ideal balance of reputation and affordability.”
Kettering helps guide students toward success by promoting practical application, not just theory. The school’s highly qualified staff, which ranked No. 1 in social mobility in a 2018 New York Times study and received a Faculty Credentials and Training score of 100/100 from U.S. News World & Report, teaches not just tech, but also communication, diversity, teamwork, and conflict resolution, and takes their lead from students. The school’s online MBA program started five years ago, although it has offered MBAs to students for longer.
While many MBA programs are encountering a decline in enrollment, Dr. Christine Wallace, Vice President Kettering Global and Acting Dean of the School of Management, describes Kettering’s program as being “one of the strongest and fastest-growing in the area.”
Wallace expresses the great promise this holds for the area as the center of vehicle and autonomous vehicle mobility, with nowhere to go but up. MBA programs lead to career advancement, Wallace explains, which lead to more responsibility, more opportunities for promotion, and overall greater success.
For these reasons, the school wants to reach as much talent as possible, and help students reach their full potential.
