Fayetteville, N.C. – Fayetteville State University has been ranked No. 3 in among the 2024 Best Online MBA Programs for Veterans in North Carolina, No. 6 overall in the state, by U.S. News & World Report. U.S. News assessed schools in the Best Online MBA Programs based on several objective factors, such as student engagement, faculty credentials, and services and technologies.
“We’ve made a concerted effort to be the top-choice institution for military-affiliated individuals and ranking No. 3 for veterans is evidence of our commitment,” said Monica Leach, Ed.D., FSU’s provost and senior vice chancellor for academic affairs. “We are proud of our military friendly status, but more importantly it emphasizes our dedication to removing barriers and making education accessible and affordable for everyone.”
That commitment is also emphasized as FSU offers free tuition to military-connected students through the Military Tuition Scholarship. It makes FSU a unique option for veterans seeking to continue their education.
“I have tremendous pride in our MBA program as it consistently ranks as one the best online programs in the state,” said Ulysses Taylor, J.D., dean of FSU’s Broadwell College of Business and Economics. “The rankings provide confirmation of the incredible work our faculty engages in and presents FSU as a great opportunity for perspective students seeking to achieve their next level of success.”
FSU’s Online MBA Program ranked No. 67 among public universities and No. 94 in the national rankings, out of 345 total universities ranked evaluated.
