TrineOnline programs ranked by U.S. News
Trine University’s online degree programs once again placed among the best in the United States in rankings released today, Jan. 14, by U.S. News & World Report.
The U.S. News & World Report Best Online Programs rankings include online degrees from public and private institutions nationwide. The 2020 edition marks the second year in a row Trine University, which groups its online programs under TrineOnline, has been recognized.
“As Trine University continues to expand and enhance its TrineOnline offerings, we are grateful to receive continued honors from U.S. News and other organizations,” said Keirsten Eberts, assistant vice president for TrineOnline. “However, the most important recognition we receive is from our students and alumni, as we further improve the online classroom experience and as students receive the personal attention from faculty and advisors that has been the hallmark of a Trine University education since 1884.”
Trine once again was recognized in the U.S. News rankings in three categories: graduate engineering degrees; graduate business degrees, non-MBA; and bachelor’s degrees.
Trine University’s Master of Science in engineering management (MSEM) degree is designed for engineers seeking to move into a management role.
In graduate business programs outside of the MBA, Trine University offers the Lou Holtz Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL). Designed for working professionals, the MSOL allows students to work at their own pace as they develop leadership skills. The university also has added a Master of Science in Business Analytics program, which prepares graduates to collect, analyze and interpret information to make fact-based strategic business decisions.
Trine University’s online bachelor’s degree programs include accounting, applied management, communication, computer information science, criminal justice, healthcare administration, human resources management, information systems, management, manufacturing technology, organizational leadership and psychology.
U.S. News said it evaluated more than 1,600 online degree programs for 2020, an all-time high. To be considered, programs needed to grant degrees through predominantly online classes.
The Best Online rankings only include programs housed in regionally accredited institutions. Certificate degrees, associate’s degrees and doctoral degrees are not surveyed nor ranked, U.S. News said.
The organization said it updated the methodology this year to give more credit to schools that provide online help with course registration, admissions counseling and building a resume.
