Best online MBA programs: the onlineMBAonline rankings

Assessing the best online MBA programs very much depends on what you consider the judgement criteria to be. Accredited online MBA programs? Online MBA rankings? Online MBA cost?


We'll keep it simple; for our list of the best online MBA programs we've chosen to base the onlineMBAonline ranking on the premier global online MBA rankings (QS and FT) with a quality flag for 'triple accredited' institutions (non-US) and another to recognise a top 10 ranking in the US News ranking (US). There are less than 100 triple accredited schools in the world and they make up an exclusive club of just 1% of total MBA providers.


For more online MBA ranking information refer to the FT online MBA ranking, the QS distance online MBA ranking and the US News and World Report online MBA rankings and The Princeton Review online MBA ranking.


onlineMBAonline rankings - selecting the world's best online MBA programs

ABOUT: onlineMBAonline in-house 'rank of ranks' covering the best online MBA programs from around the world.


METHODOLOGY: THE LOWER THE AGGREGATE RANK SCORE, THE BETTER! The top 15 FT rank score combined with QS top 15 rank score.


Priority will be given to business schools registering in the top 15 for BOTH rankings so an aggregate rank score of 10 made up of a '6' and a '4' will be positioned higher in our system than a single rank score of '9'. SINGLE RANK SCORES DENOTED BY '*'.


Quality flags are raised if a business school is triple accredited (favours non-US institutions) or if institutions appear in the top 10 of the latest US News & World Report.
