Online Business and Leadership Program Ranked #19

The Open Education Database (OEDb.org), a comprehensive online education directory for both free and for-credit learning options, offers up-to-date, detailed program information from accredited online colleges, along with a categorized list of over 8,000 free online college courses from well-known universities.

OEDb.org has published online college rankings for over a decade. This year, their list of the top online bachelor’s in business administration programs came down to 25 schools, each preparing students for exciting careers in business. NGU’s online business and leadership bachelor’s degree program ranked No. 19 and earned this recognition with academic quality and a commitment to student success.

Compared to all other fields of study, business is the most popular choice for undergraduates.

 In 2013-14, 80% more undergraduate business degrees were awarded than in any other field of study. In regards to online study, business administration is even more popular, with upwards of 34% of online students choosing a business administration online degree, more than twice as many as the next most popular field. As the popularity of online learning grows, so too does the effectiveness of online delivery.

Accredited educational institutions promise students the same quality degree online as they do on-campus, with the added benefit of flexible online study. An online business administration degree is usually offered with asynchronous class schedules, meaning students can study whenever they want and less travel to and from campus is required.

While some schools do offer a business administration online degree with scheduled classes, meetings, and/or on-campus requirements, these are usually held during nights and weekends and are kept to a minimum for maximum convenience.

As a business and leadership major at NGU, much time will be spent managing, leading, communicating, analyzing, team building, solving problems, researching, making decisions, determining ownership structure, solving ethical issues, and motivating others.

Students learn about theories of motivation, leadership qualities, financial analysis, employment law, communication skills, servant leadership skills, marketing, and resume development, as well as how to apply this knowledge a career.

In their senior year, students will develop a personal portfolio that will highlight current and previous experiences, jobs, education, and learning. This includes an upgraded resume and documentation of your accomplishments. A special feature of this course is the student’s ability to request and supply proof of prior experiential learning, earning you up to 12 hours of transfer credit, which saves both time and tuition.

Ultimately, NGU’s online business and leadership degree will provide a strong education based on a biblical worldview that will prepare students for a variety of business-related pursuits.
