The business school news hub ranks the top 35 online MBA programs based on admissions standards, academic experience, and employment outcomes

OAKLAND, CA, October 09, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Poets&Quants, the definitive online publication for business education news, has unveiled its 2019 ranking of The Best Online MBA Programs. Considered the standard for business programs, the data revealed the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business Online MBA as the #1 online business school in the country.

“This second annual ranking represents an expansion of the ranking, with more schools participating,” said Nathan Allen, Poets&Quants staff writer. “The result is a wide breadth of programs that are not necessarily the brands we see with traditional MBAs, offering quality programs, accessible to a wider range of people.”

This ranking is the cornerstone feature of Poets&Quants’ comprehensive Online MBA Hub. A one-of-a-kind resource, the Online MBA Hub offers advice, rankings, analysis, school profiles, and other tools to help students navigate the complex options available for online MBAs.

The top 10 online MBA programs are:

1. University of Southern California (Marshall)
2. Auburn University (Harbert)
3. Indiana University (Kelley)
4. Carnegie Mellon University (Tepper)
5. Lehigh University
6. University of North Carolina (Kenan-Flagler)
7. University of Florida (Hough)
8. University of Nebraska-Lincoln
9. Hofstra University (Zarb)
10. University of Texas at Dallas (Jindal)

Poets&Quants based its rankings on three core dimensions of an MBA program:

– the quality of the incoming students
– an assessment by graduates of the MBA experience, both the academic and the extracurricular activities
– the career outcomes of a program’s graduates

Poets&Quants gathered data from both school and alumni surveys. The school survey asked for a wide variety of data, from admissions standards to global immersion trips. The alumni survey, sent to MBA graduates who graduated between 2016 and last spring, sought their impressions on a wide range of topics, from whether the program fulfilled their expectations to whether they would recommend the program to others.

Join us for an exclusive livestream today Tuesday, October 9th at 9:35am PT on Poets&Quants for an interview with Dean Ellis of the #1 ranked University of Southern California, Marshall School of Business Online MBA.
