FT online MBA ranking methodology

The FT began ranking online programs in 2014. The current methodology uses filters to ensure only certain schools make the cut. Schools must be internationally accredited and programs must have run for at least four years.


Online content must account for at least 70% of overall material and quality controls are also placed on enrolment (students must have passed a selection process) and on graduation (students must have passed an examination process).


Data for the ranking is collected via two online surveys; one aimed at participating schools and the other by alumni. Schools will only be ranked if 20% or more of the alumni respond in their questionnaire and a minimum or 20 responses must be collected for the sample to be verfiied.


Six ranking criteria are employed:


Salary today

Salary increase

Aims achieved

Programme delivery

Online interaction

Value for money


The alumni response makes up 65% of the overall score, the remainde is derived from the business school returns.
