US News Refreshes Online MBA Ranking for 2017

Temple's Online MBA leads the ranking again; Carnegie Mellon takes the second spot

US News and World Report has updated its Online MBA ranking for 2017.

The online MBA from Temple University's Fox School of Business and Management leads the ranking once again, and is followed by the MBA from Carnegie Mellon's Tepper Business School. IU Kelley has dropped one spot to take position number three, and UNC is ranked at position number four. ASU - Carey and Florida - Hough are tied for spot number five.

There were a few big leaps in this year's ranking. 

See below for the top 20 programs ranked in the new online MBA ranking. The Online MBA at Florida State University jumped 28 spots to land at position number 16. Tied for that same spot is Wisconsin - Whitewater, which rose 11 spots this year. It had jumped 76 spots in the previous year. 

To determine the rankings, US News used five separate categories, specific to each school's online MBA program. The categories are student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technology. The ranking only includes business schools based in the US.

Unlike other MBA rankings, the US News Online MBA ranking does not take into account post-MBA salary.
