US News Publishes Online MBA Ranking for 2016

The Online MBA from Temple - Fox leads the ranking; IU - Kelley's online program takes second place

US News & World Report has refreshed its ranking of online MBA programs for 2016.

This year, the online MBA from Temple University's Fox School of Business and Management stands alone in the top spot, while the online MBA from Indiana University at Bloomington's Kelley School of Business takes second, and the online MBA from UNC's Kenan-Flagler takes third place. Last year, these three schools were all tied for the top position.

Coming in fourth is the online MBA from the University of Florida's Hough Graduate School of Business. ASU's Carey School of Business rounds-out the top-five. See a complete list of the ranked programs below.

For this ranking, US News and World Report listed the online MBA programs based on five factors: student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technology. The ranking, unlike the Online MBA Ranking from the Financial Times, does not take into account post-MBA salary growth.
