TROY cited as 'best buy'

Posted: Monday, 17 March 2014

TROY - Troy University has been named a "Best Buy" for its online Master of Business Administration degree, and for its online master's programs in management and human resources.

GetEducated.com, a consumer advocacy group for online students, ranked TROY's online MBA program in the top 20 of 124 regionally accredited business schools in the nation.

The University's Master of Human Resources program ranked 7th nationally of 40 online HR degrees, and its Master of Management program ranked 17th of 45 all-online programs. Additionally, TROY's Master of Public Administration degree ranked 10th of 50 similarly accredited online programs.

A Get Educated Best Buy award indicates the University's online learning program has been independently reviewed and 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.
