The Executive MBA (EMBA), offered by the College of Business in partnership with Extended Studies, was ranked the number 42 “Best Buy” in the “Best Affordable Accredited Online MBA Programs” category. The program costs $24,000 and is taught by the same faculty that teach the College’s part-time MBA program, which is ranked number four in the country by Bloomberg BusinessWeek.
The two “Best Buy” master’s degree programs in education, offered by the College of Education in partnership with Extended Studies, include the Master of Science in Equity and Diversity in Education and the Master of Education in Literacy Studies. They were ranked number 31 and number 36 “Best Buys,” respectively. The programs range in cost from about $11,186 to $16,115, depending on which program and whether the student is a resident or from out of state. Both programs are accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
The University now offers seven entirely online master degree programs, four in education, one in behavior analytic psychology, one in justice management and the EMBA. It also offers, in collaboration with its sister institution UNLV, the Doctorate of Nursing Practice online program. In addition, there are a handful of certification and credentialing programs offered entirely online, including the Graduate Certificate in Renewable Energy and programs in specific areas of psychology and addiction treatment.
