For the third consecutive year, Embry-Riddle Worldwide has been named one of the nation’s top online educators by U.S. News & World Report. Embry-Riddle Worldwide also placed in the top 50 for its online non-MBA graduate business programs.
“What defines Embry-Riddle’s online education is our attention to student support,” said Dr. Jason Ruckert, Embry-Riddle Worldwide’s vice chancellor for online education. “With decades of experience in distance learning, we are setting the standard for world-class online education by focusing on engagement and services critical to student success.”
Flexibility and quality are key factors in the development of any Embry-Riddle online program. Classes are offered in a variety of modalities, formats, and times allowing the student to structure their education around their lifestyle. New terms start monthly, allowing students the ability to move through course work at a sustainable, yet accelerated pace.
To publish its annual lists, U.S. News & World Report ranked online bachelor’s degree programs and graduate business programs in the following categories: student engagement, admissions selectivity (graduate business programs), faculty credentials and training, peer reputation and student services and technology.
“Technology has given our faculty and advisors the ability to interact with students in new and exciting ways, and we’re constantly looking to improve the overall student experience,” said Ruckert. Effective use of technology allows faculty and advisors the opportunity to actively interact with students, regardless of location. At Embry-Riddle, personal attention is delivered to students through email, real-time chats, discussion boards and an assortment of web-based activities. Additional tools like Embry-Riddle’s virtual labs enhance the academic experience by using a hands-on approach to learning in areas that many thought could only be delivered in a traditional classroom environment.
Face-to-face meetings are also encouraged at local alumni association events where students can meet university staff, network with alumni, and tap into the school’s global support network.
To Embry-Riddle Worldwide, online learning is more than the method used to deliver coursework to students remotely. Online learning is an evolving experience that introduces a diverse and growing global audience to a high-quality education from a nationally recognized leader. Begin your Embry-Riddle journey today!
