Worcester Business Journal - UMassOnline Student Count Continues To Rise
By Matt Pilon
UMassOnline, the Shrewsbury-based division of the University of Massachusetts, saw a 12 percent increase in student enrollment in fiscal year 2011, the university said.
Enrollment in the online program increased from 45,772 to 51,097 year-over-year and the program saw a 16 percent increase in revenue, from $56.2 million to $65.2 million.
The four UMass campuses launched 22 new online programs during the past year and recently inked a deal with the National Education Association that offers 15 online master's degrees to NEA members.
It is the 10th year in a row that UMassOnline has reported double-digit growth in both enrollment and revenues. The program was founded in 2001.
