Ranking Methodology

We’ve compiled a ranking of reputable, online MBA programs, taking into account what matters to you — MBA program reputation, and perhaps just as important, price. Combining MBA program rankings from esteemed, trusted publications including The Economist, U.S. News, Princeton Review, and PayScale, we’ve generated a unique list of U.S.-based, online MBA programs that you won’t find anywhere else. After splicing together established rankings lists from the above publications, we’ve added cost of tuition as a metric. The result? A robust list of affordable online MBA programs that prospective students can rely on as they seek to further their studies and careers in business.
