Three programs at Stony Brook University have been placed in the 2014 top 100 U.S. News & World Report Best Online Education Program Rankings — Best Online Graduate Nursing Programs, Best Online Graduate Education Programs and Best Online Graduate Business Programs.
The methodology to determine the U.S. News rankings consists of student engagement rates, faculty credentials and training, and support services and technology. In addition, peer reputation was factored into each program’s score this year, which according to U.S. News is important to potential employers, especially in online education.
“SUNY is focused on educating more New Yorkers and educating them better than ever before, and increased access to the online courses offered across SUNY is one way we are achieving these goals,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “As we continue toward the introduction of Open SUNY, the system’s comprehensive delivery of online education for all students, each campus’ experience and leadership will be a critical component. Congratulations to all of the faculty and staff who contribute to success in online learning.”
