Schools were selected based on three primary categories, including tuition affordability, low student-faculty ratios, and a pattern of strong success rates of students graduating.
It’s no surprise that the UNO Emergency Management team succeeded in each of these areas.
Other peers in the running included Emery-Riddle Aeronautical University, The George Washington University, Arkansas State University, among others.
Affordable Schools writes, “the economical, 120-credit, Higher Learning Commission-accredited plan has 76 percent retention in online courses like Risk Mitigation.”
Affordability meets intimate class sizes and provides world-class education. There’s truly no better time to be a Maverick at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
