Online MBA Report evaluated more than 400 U.S.-based online MBA programs and gathered its information in three ways:

  1. School Surveys – Online MBA Report surveyed schools offering online MBA programs asking them about their program as well as their input as to which schools they view as the “best.”
  2. Publicly available information on each school’s website.
  3. Other reputable publications (U.S. News & World Report, Princeton Review, etc.).

The criteria Online MBA Report used in making its list consists, in no particular order, of the following:

  • Academic reputation of a given school’s online MBA program as well as its campus-based MBA program, if available;
  • Value as it relates to tuition and indebtedness;
  • Relative MBA program enrollment numbers;
  • Admissions selectivity; and
  • Program quality and rigor.
