Recognized for student outcomes and affordability, according to BestColleges 

(LEBANON, Ill., June 20, 2019) — McKendree University has been recognized as one of the top 25 2019 Best Online Bachelor's in Human Resources programs in the nation by BestColleges, a leading provider of independent college rankings, college planning resources, and higher education research. The annual ranking highlights accredited, nonprofit institutions who have developed quality online human resources programs that focus on student outcomes.      

The BestColleges ranking methodology focuses on academics and learner support, affordability, and online programming with schools evaluated on several noteworthy data points aggregated from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and College Navigator, both of which are hosted by the National Center for Education Statistics. Additionally, BestColleges compiled institutional and program-level question responses from a proprietary survey circulated to schools offering online bachelor’s programs. From these responses, six additional ranking factors were incorporated into this year’s ranking methodology. These updated ranking factors further emphasize schools who strongly support their students while also offering a strong return on investment.

“After researching hundreds of human resources programs around the country, BestColleges identified 25 schools who rank among the best colleges to obtain a Bachelor’s in Human Resources degree from. We believe the programs listed reflect the best academic opportunities for students wishing to further their career goals,” said Stephanie Snider, director of BestColleges. “We’re thrilled to have McKendree University be a part of this list, and we commend them for establishing this exceptional online program that focuses on academic success while remaining affordable and flexible.”
