Troy University's online business program has been awarded the "Best Buy" award as one of the best accredited programs in the nation.
Troy's Master of Business Administration degree and its online master's programs in management and human resources has received a Get Educated Best Buy award.
Geteducated.com, a consumer advocacy group for online students, ranked Troy's online MBA program in the top 20 out of 124 accredited business schools in the nation.
Troy's Master of Human Resources program ranked seven out of 40 in online HR degrees in the nation. Troy's Master of Management program also ranked 17 out of 45 in all-online programs, and the Master of Public Administration degree ranked 10 out of 50 in accredited online programs.
The Best Buy award indicates the University's online program has been reviewed independently and was found to offer "a high quality, regionally accredited online program at a cost that ranks well below the national average."
"Affordability is just one facet of what we provide our online students," said Dr. Lance Tatum, Vice Chancellor of Global Campus, the arm of the University that oversees programs outside of the state of Alabama and eTROY.
"While our online programs are truly best buys, the eTROY faculty and staff are dedicated to providing our students quality at every step of the degree program," he said.
