The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs ranks 42nd on this year's "5o Best Online MBA Degrees," list released this week by College Choice, a ranking and resource website.

UCCS' online Master's in Business Administration degree launched 20 years ago and has consistently been named to the top 50 MBA programs in the country by U.S. News and World Report.

The reason for its high marks, according to College Choice: the degree is customizable, completely online and is open to students from all educational and work backgrounds. "It's also one of the few programs that have the on-campus faculty teaching the online classes," the site says in naming UCCS to its list.

UCCS also provides nine areas of emphasis that also are available online, such as health care administration, international business and innovation management. These allow students to specialize their degree in a field of interest while getting a general MBA.
