Black Hills State University has been ranked No. 91 among the 2023 Best Online Undergraduate Business Programs by U.S. News & World Report.

U.S. News assessed schools in the Best Online Undergraduate Business Programs based on a variety of objective factors, such as student engagement, faculty credentials, and services and technologies.

“We are extremely pleased with this recognition of our business program,” Jon Kilpinen, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, said. “We have dedicated, caring faculty members who go out of their way to engage and support out students—both in the classroom and online. Their commitment to student success makes all the difference.”

Designed for individuals looking to complete or further their education, this year's edition evaluates more than 1,800 online bachelor's and master's degree programs. The Best Online Programs include rankings of bachelor's programs as well as the following master's-level disciplines: MBA, business (non-MBA), computer information technology (including computer science), criminal justice/criminology, education, engineering, and nursing. While the methodologies are different for each discipline, they all incorporate metrics specific to online learning. The rankings only include degree-granting programs that are offered primarily online by regionally accredited institutions.

"Most of the undergraduate programs in the Best Online Programs rankings are degree completion programs, meaning the vast majority of their students already have some college credit," said Liana Loewus, managing editor of Education at U.S. News. "The methodologies are developed with those students in mind, setting these rankings apart from those that are focused on recent high school graduates pursuing higher education for the first time."
