Several Bryan College Online Graduate Programs Receive Recognition

Monday, November 12, 2018

Several of Bryan College’s online graduate programs received recognition from OnlineMBAPage.com and OnlineMasters.com as the top programs both in the state of Tennessee and nationally.

OnlineMBAPage.com named Bryan’s Human Resources and Sports Management online graduate programs as top in the state, and listed the college’s online Masters in Business Administration program as one of the best value, fully accredited programs in Tennessee, behind UTC.

OnlineMBAPage.com made its selections by first evaluating the programs’ accreditation. Bryan College’s School of Graduate Studies received reaffirmation of accreditation from the International Accreditation Council for Business Education in April 2018. 

When selecting which programs are the best in each state, OnlineMBAPage.com factored in a program’s entrance exam requirements, class delivery formats, philosophy of teaching, reputation, and related clubs or centers for networking and support for each accredited program in the state. 

Both of Bryan’s Human Resources and Sports Management MBA programs are fully accredited, completely online, and offer accelerated formats, which provide students with the opportunity to graduate in as little as 14-months. 

Based on these factors, Bryan College’s online MBA in Human Resources program and the online MBA in Sports Management program were selected as the best in the state of Tennessee. 

OnlineMBAPage.com also named Bryan’s online MBA program as one of Tennessee’s best programs for its value, coming in second behind the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s online MBA program.  The online MBA program at Bryan is affordable, costing $1,080 less than the state average for IACBE-accredited online MBAs at private business schools. 

“We are very thankful for this recognition,” said Dr. Stephen Livesay, president of Bryan College. “It is an honor to provide students with convenient and flexible faith-based programs that guarantee our students are as prepared as possible to find a career in their field of study.” 

OnlineMasters.com selected Bryan College as one of the Best MBA in Marketing programs in the nation for 2019. Bryan College earned the 25th spot out of the only 50 colleges across the country that made it to the final list. The top-ranked programs were selected based on curriculum, program flexibility, affordability, and graduate outcomes. 

“In addition to this award, our research found Bryan College’s marketing program to also be ‘Best For Marketing Strategists’. This speaks to the amazing work that Bryan’s program is doing and demonstrates to our 100,000 monthly visitors that the program provides quality education to help students with their career aspirations.” said Barbara Montgomery, Program Recognition manager at OnlineMasters.com. 

“Bryan College is honored to be recognized for our graduate coursework in marketing," said Dr. Adina Scruggs, dean, School of Adult and Graduate Studies. "Bryan’s MBA with a marketing specialization was created in response to marketplace needs in the ever-changing environment of business. We continue to adapt our curriculum to ensure our students are well prepared for the current market.”
