The U.S. News & World Report rates Clarion Online’s Master of Business Administration faculty and its Master of Business (non-MBA) faculty at No. 1 for faculty credentials and training.
The rating was part of its criteria for ranking Clarion Online's MBA program at 115th and its non-MBA faculty at 71st in the nation.
According to the U.S. News and World Report, the credentials and training score "measures how well a school prepares qualified instructors to teach remotely." The maximum score is 100, which Clarion's professors received.
"I believe that my colleagues and I have been providing highly effective learning experiences for our online MBA students by not just being student-centered instructors, but also world-class researchers and community volunteers who strengthen their professions," said MBA faculty member Miguel R. Olivas-Lujan, Ph.D.
Another contributing factor to the score is that all of Clarion Online's MBA professors have doctorates, and they include Kreag Danvers, Jason Heavilin, Tony Johns, Mike Kaymaz, Olivas-Luján, Rod Raehsler, Frank Shepard, Sandra Trejos, Paul Woodburne, Nripendra Singh and Chad Smith.
The same goes for its non-MBA faculty, which is the Master of Science in Accounting program taught by Danvers, Shepard, Johns, Kaymaz and Jay Annadatha.
The College of Business Administration and Information Sciences offers many graduate degree options. Each degree program is available to students from all undergraduate majors and prepares graduates for success in multiple industries, including sciences, arts, healthcare, business, government and many others.
