ECU Ranked No. 2 Among Best Value Colleges for Online IT Degree

February 1, 2016 – East Carolina University has been ranked among the 10 best value colleges for an online information technology (IT) degree by College Values Online. The ranking was published on the organization’s website in January.

East Carolina University was ranked second.

Using the National Center for Education Statistics’ College Navigator database, the 10 best value colleges for an online IT degree were selected and ranked based on graduation rate and net price.

Since its inception in 1907, ECU has evolved from a teachers training school to a national research university. Today, ECU is the third largest public university in North Carolina with more than 27,500 students. The campus now includes more than 160 buildings in four

locations: the central campus, health sciences, athletics, and west research campus. The university’s academic programs are housed in ten colleges and professional schools.

“We are pleased to land on the list of best value colleges for an online IT degree,” says Chancellor Steve Ballard. “This ranking demonstrates the affordable, quality education we offer to all our students at East Carolina.”

ECU’s bachelor’s degree in Business Education with a focus in Information Technologies comprises a comprehensive curriculum that integrates liberal arts – including diverse coursework in art, economics, history, and psychology – with a strong foundation of business and technical coursework. ECU rises to the top of the online IT degree rankings with classes like Finance Information Systems; Administrative Management; and Web Site Design and Development, all of which will prepare students to meet the changing needs of businesses around the world and serve as leaders in workforce preparedness education and information technologies.
