The level of online “social” interaction for students seeking an online MBA degree really matters these days, so it’s very good news that Colorado Christian University’s College of Adult & Graduate Studies was recently named one of the “Top 10 Most Social Media Friendly Online MBA Schools” in the country by onlinembapage.com. The staff compiled data from the social media accounts of 42 schools in the United States offering online MBA programs and then used that information to create the list of top ten social friendly schools for online MBA programs. Being a top online MBA school is a great honor as several factors were used to narrow down the list. Some of those factors were the number of followers or subscribers for each account and the amount of activity such as posts, tweets, video postings, etc. taking place.
Social media outlets such as Twitter, Facebook and the like allow schools to connect with students (past, present and future), and because many students are choosing schools that have a lot of social media engagement, CAGS is very happy to have made the list. We want students who are Internet savvy so the school must be Internet savvy. For this reason, we have more than just a mere “presence” on social media sites; we are interacting on a daily basis to gain and share knowledge with those with common interests across the country.
Let’s take a look at some specific data about CAGS online MBA degree program that onlinembapage.com collected:
