Duquesne University's Palumbo-Donahue School of Business Online Master's in Management Program has been ranked No. 34 of the Top 50 Best Values for 2017.

The ranking, from Value Colleges, reflects the growing need of working professionals who are looking at their resumes, credentials and career prospects and making a leap to online education to bolster their chances of promotion and advancement.

"We are pleased to be recognized for our commitment to providing quality education that delivers both value and a high return on investment," said Dr. Karen Donovan, associate dean of graduate programs and executive education at the Palumbo-Donahue School of Business. "The Master of Science in Management faculty deliver an enriching and challenging educational experience in an online environment that students have found to be engaging and immediately applicable to their careers."

At Duquesne, students gain the cutting-edge skills and the entrepreneurial mindset needed to succeed in any organization. The flexible, 30-credit online program can be completed in just one year. Students are able to make an immediate impact, effectively manage people and seize opportunities in their organizations.

The Master of Science in Management and its variations are designed for two specific types of students:

  • An individual with a bachelor's degree in business who has the learning, but not the work experience, for higher-level managerial positions
  • An experienced professional or working adult who has a non-business bachelor's degree and finds themselves in a managerial role or wants to progress in their career to management.

Value Colleges considers the following metrics in determining the Top 50 Online Master's in Management Degrees of 2017: reputation derived from U.S. News & World Report; graduate salaries determined from the U.S. Department of Education College Scorecard; and tuition listed on an institution's website.
