Having completed my Bachelor's from an American institutions, it seemed only logical that I would look to an American University to progress onto a post graduate distance learning course. However, here is the answers to the above questions. 

There are about five thousand, three hundred universities in the United States and this number is inclusive of beauty colleges as well. Due to the numerous options, studying in the United States can be overwhelming. However, I have found out that international distance learning universities, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings for the year 2018, are just about one hundred and sixty.

I also found that wherever in the United States I wanted to study, there was a university with good repute. Almost all the states are represented in the top hundred universities ranking and better still, they offered distance learning postgraduate courses.

I also found that the University of California at Berkeley is the best college for business according to the Business Insider. Aside from being top ranked, they offer MBA programs, which rival getting an MBA in UK. There are even finance courses distance learning and MSc Marketing distance learning options. 

It was interesting to find out that, there are options for students who want flexible study coupled with the prestige of U.S institutions and cutting-edge models of delivery. There are a good number of Universities, found in the top hundred, offering some fo the best distance learning courses including online MBA courses.
