The College of Business’ Information Security MBA program has been named No.13 in the nation, and is also the top ranked in the state of Virginia according to The Princeton Review's 5th annual ranking of online MBA programs. It climbed up two spots from No. 15 last year, and this current accolade joins others in listing the program as the top in the state.

The JMU InfoSec MBA focuses on managerial decision making, analytical problem solving and the application of theoretical constructs, all set in an information security framework. It uses a “blended” format of instruction and is completed over 28 consecutive months, with bimonthly meetings held in Tyson’s Corner, Va. 

The Princeton Review chose its top programs ranking list based on data from the company's 2018–2019 surveys of administrators at more than 110 business schools offering online MBAs. The company also factored in data from its 2018–2019 surveys of more than 6,000 students enrolled in the online MBA programs. More than 60 data points were weighted to determine the list and rankings. The criteria focused on five core areas: academics, selectivity, faculty, technical platforms and career outcomes.
