America’s Best™ Online MBA Programs for 2017

Earning an online MBA is a bold, smart choice that will accelerate your business career, leading to large increases in salary and positions of higher responsibility. In the recent past, professionals had no option but to attend a full-time, campus-based MBA program. This presented considerable logistical difficulties for experienced business professionals with full-time work and family obligations. Now everything can be learned online—including your MBA.

We analyzed nearly every MBA program available online using a simple proprietary formula based on metrics we felt were important to our community. Over a dozen MBA and Business Management advisory members helped design our rankings.

We ranked all schools based on cost, accreditation, testing requirements, reputation and specialization options. Accreditation, affordability and reputation were big sticking points with our advisory team. The cost figures were calculated using the minimum number of required credits and the in-state tuition rate. The rates may be higher for out-of-state students. Some schools offer the same rate no matter where you are located.

GMAT/GRE. While some programs require the GMAT/GRE, some schools have a waiver option dependent on GPA and or work experience.

Our Methodology

We analyzed over 200 online MBA programs and considered five metrics for each school: cost, accreditation, reputation, testing requirements, and the number of specializations available. We broke the scoring down as follows:

Cost

We awarded points based on the approximate base program cost, from the most expensive to the the least expensive (cheapest) program receiving the highest number of points. The maximum number of points for cost was 30. Base program cost were compared against per credit cost figures and cited direct from the university website with a cross reference from US News World Report. All figures are current as of the release of this report.

All credit and tuition figures are based on part-time and in-state figures. Some schools offer the same tuition whether in-state or out-of-state. We highly suggest schools consider offering the same in-state tuition figures to out of state students as a way to attract a more global audience. We applaud those schools that offer the same tuition rates no matter where the student is located.

Total program credits required were based on the minimum numbers when a range was presented.

Most schools also offer discounts on tuition for military service.

These figures do not take into consideration any additional fees that may occur throughout the duration of the program.

Reputation

This score is based on the school’s reputation as rated by RateMyProfessors.com, a crowd-based ratings site. There were 20 points possible. RateMyProfessors.com is the largest online destination for professor and school ratings. Users have added more than 15 million ratings, 1.4 million professors and over 7,000 schools to RateMyProfessors.com. More than 4 million college students each month are using Rate My Professors. We felt it was imperative for students to be aware of this reputation feedback from other students but didn’t place much weight as this does not represent the sole reputation of the school. Consult our guide to help choose the best mba degree program from fully accredited online universities.

Accreditation

We awarded 35 points to schools that are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This accreditation is the gold standard for business school accreditation and is a strong indicator of a quality MBA program. Programs that are accredited by the AACSB generally receive more trust from students and employers alike. Many employers will not recognize your MBA if it is not from an AACSB-accredited program. Often times a non-AACSB accredited MBA program will suffice if you plan on working in the same state where the school is located. Some programs that are not currently AACSB accredited may be in process of getting approved.

Testing Requirements

Preparing for the GMAT or GRE is time-consuming and difficult, and the test results have not been shown to accurately predict whether a student will succeed or fail in an MBA program. We awarded 10 points to schools that do not require these tests for admission. Some schools do require foreign students to take the TOEFL, but we feel that this is necessary to ensure that students will be able to understand the course material. We noted the TOEFL requirement in the listings, but it had no impact on the scoring.

Some schools with a GMAT/GRE requirement may offer a waiver option depending on work experience or GPA.

Schools which have No GMAT/GRE requirement will always have a minimum GPA requirement—typically between 2.5 and 3.0—so pay particular attention to this.

Specializations

We counted up the number of MBA specializations offered by each school and awarded a higher score to those schools offering the most options. The highest score for specializations was 5.
