US News and World Report has updated its rankings of online business programs for 2014.
This year's list is led by Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, which has offered an online MBA program since 1999, through its Kelley Direct branch. (Kelley Direct also offers online MS programs in Finance, Global Supply Chain Management, Marketing, and Strategic Management.)
In second place is ASU Carey, which offers an online MBA program that allows students to select from four areas of emphasis: Finance, International Business, Marketing, or Supply Chain Management.
Third place in the rankings belongs to the Florida Warrington (Hough.) The school offers an "Internet MBA" program that can be completed in either 16 or 27 months.
The complete top ten can be found at the bottom of this post.
US News' ranking of online business programs rates business schools in the United States on the following factors: student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, and student services and technology. Significantly, the ranking does not take into account post-MBA salaries and career progression, as is commonly done by traditional rankings.
