    Platteville, WI

    PLATTEVILLE, Wis., March 6, 2013— In its annual ranking, “Best Online Education Programs,” U.S. News & World Report ranked University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s (GoUWP.com) bachelor’s in business program No. 85 in the nation.

    "We are pleased that the hard work of our students, faculty and staff helps fuel the recognition of our outstanding online bachelor’s and master’s degree programs," said Dawn Drake, executive director of alternative delivery systems at UW-Platteville.  

    UW-Platteville’s bachelor’s program in business administration is featured here. Regionally, UW-Platteville edged out University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (No. 123), UW-Superior (No. 148), Waldorf College, Forest City, IA (No. 128), and IAB College of Business (No. 86).

    UW-Platteville also ranked:

    • 20th in Top Public Schools (Midwest)
    • 70th in Regional University Midwest Rankings

    The magazine’s rankings were based only on degree-granting programs offering courses that are 100 percent online, like those at UW-Platteville. The rankings were based on student engagement, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technology. Admissions selectivity and academic peer reputation were also included in the calculations for business program rankings.

    While the U.S. News rankings evaluate online programs, many of the top-performing schools have physical campuses, like UW-Platteville. And proximity to campus is an important factor for students, according to a July 2012 report by Learning House. The “Best Online Education” rankings can be found on the U.S. News website.

    UW-Platteville’s online Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) program is flexible to fit the busy lifestyles of working adults who can receive course-related materials online, through the mail, or both. The BSBA program provides in-depth knowledge of the various facets of business, as well as the flexibility to select coursework that aligns with an individual’s professional and personal goals.
