FT online MBA ranking

ABOUT: Inclusion in the FT online MBA ranking is based on strict entry criteria (explaining why the 2015 list only contains 15 institutions):

  • At least 70 percent of content must be delivered online
  • Programs must have run for at least four consecutive years
  • Schools must be internationally accredited
  • Students must pass an entrance exam prior to starting the course and sit an exit exam prior to completion


METHODOLOGY: Data is collected from online surveys, one sourced from Business Schools and another from alumni. Alumni data is more heavily weighted. Crucially, alumni are asked to rate the level of peer and academic interaction on the course and are also asked to rate the online delivery.


MONTH OF ISSUE: March 2016.
