US News Publishes Online MBA Ranking for 2018

Temple's Online MBA leads the list; the MBAs from Carnegie Mellon and IU - Kelley tied for second place

[Update February 2018: Temple - Fox has been moved to the 'unranked' category for misreporting GMAT statistics. The following article has been edited to reflect this new information.]

The publication US News and World Report has updated its Online MBA Ranking for 2018.

When the rankings were The Online MBA from Temple University's Fox School of Business and Management led the ranking. However, the publication later reported that since the school had mis-reported GMAT statistics, it would be moved to the 'unranked' category.  The online MBA programs from Carnegie Mellon University (Tepper) and IU Kelley are tied for second place. The top five is rounded out by the Online MBAs from UNC - Kenan-Flagler and Arizona State University's Carey School of Business. See a list of the top 20 programs.

To determine the rankings, US News used five factors: student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credential and training, and student services and technology. MBA accreditation is also factored into the ranking: if a school has AACSB accreditation, it influences the student engagement indicator; some credit is also given for ACBSP or IACBE accreditation. The publication only ranks US-based business schools.

Unlike other rankings of Online MBA programs, the US News ranking does not consider post-MBA salary as part of the ranking.
