Cameron University has joined the likes of Colorado State University and Florida International University on greatvaluecollege.net’s ranking of Top 25 Online MBA Programs with No GMAT Requirements.
Cameron is the only public university in Oklahoma to earn a place in the rankings.
The rankings were determined through data collected from College Navigator, a product of the National Center for Education Statistics, as well as information from the institution’s official website. Methodology used to determine placement is based primarily on tuition but also considers things like program flexibility, customization within the degree program both in content and format, and an overall factor which highlights each program’s unique offerings.
Cameron offers a flexible MBA program that can be completed either 100 percent online or via a hybrid learning format.
Alex Cox is a current student in the university’s MBA program who chose the school based partially on costs.
“One of my main goals throughout school has been graduating without taking out student loans,” Cox said.
Low tuition and the availability and flexibility that Cameron’s online courses allowed him were the driving forces behind Cox’s decision to choose the university for his graduate degree.
Cox, who graduated from OSU with his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, wanted to pursue an MBA as a way to get an edge in the tough job market. Cameron’s online courses and low tuition seemed like a no brainer, but once he began taking classes he was surprised to discover another aspect that made the university unique, the attentiveness of the professors.
“It wasn’t something I had considered originally, but now I’m glad that I made the decision to come to Cameron because of that added benefit. If I have something come up or I need an extra day to take an exam the professors are a lot more understanding here than at OSU,” Cox said.
Faculty excellence was another factor that geatvaluecollege.net considered when choosing to include Cameron in its rankings.
On Wednesday, Cox will participate in Cameron’s CU in Business event in the Johnson Auditorium, Room 111, of Ross Hall on the CU campus. Cox and other students from the program will be helping prospective students better understand the university’s business degrees.
Krystal Brue, chair, Department of Business, will present detailed information on Cameron’s MBA and MSOL degree programs, and current business students as well as alumni from CU’s graduate business programs will be on hand to offer first-hand insights about their experiences as graduate students. Attendees will have ample opportunities to ask questions about the programs.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m.
