WTAMU Graduate Business Program Recognized by U.S. News & World Report

CANYON, Texas— The West Texas A&M University online graduate business program has been recognized as one of the top programs by U.S. News & World Report, according to the latest rankings released today. 

U.S. News & World Report singled out West Texas A&M University as the number one online graduate business program in the nation in the area of student services and technology, recognizing its ability to give students unparalleled flexibility in how they learn without comprising adviser interaction and support service. Additional rankings list WTAMU at number four for a regional university in the West, 37th in the student engagement category, 51st in the faculty credentials and training category and 56th overall out of approximately 200 online graduate business programs considered for the 2013 rankings. 

“The recognition of the graduate business program at West Texas A&M University in the U.S. News & World Report 2013 rankings results from the dedication of our faculty, staff, administration and students to the principles of continuous improvement and innovation,” Dr. LaVelle Mills, associate dean of graduate business programs and professor of management, said. “We still have several goals we hope to achieve as a business program in the next few years but receiving external recognition provides positive validation that we are moving in the right direction.”

The application deadline for summer 2013 graduate business programs is May 1. To learn more about the graduate business programs at WTAMU, contact Mills at lmills@wtamu.edu (806-651-3866) or Dr. Jonathan Shaffer at jshaffer@wtamu.edu (806-651-2489).
