Online MBA Rankings

2012/13 Distance Online MBA Rankings

The QS Distance Online MBA Rankings are the first global rankings of hybrid, distance and fully online MBA programs. There has been a proliferation of distance and online MBA programs in recent years, as demand among MBA applicants soars. However, with little or no regulation of this still-young sector, the quality of these programs varies greatly.

The QS Distance Online MBA Rankings are designed to help applicants identify the world’s strongest distance online MBA programs. The carefully tailored methodology looks at the key issues for prospective MBA students, with particular attention paid to:

  • employability
  • accreditation
  • teaching

Only programs from which students have already graduated can be considered for the final ranking of 15.
