QS Publishing group, responsible for the Top MBA publications and events, have announced a new ranking table for accredited online MBA programs. These new rankings showcase the top 15 business schools providing distance learning / online / hybrid MBA programs. With more and more students choosing online education or a hybrid mix of traditional and online these rankings are of huge importance.
The rankings themselves have been formulated using robust quantitative analysis and will help students understand which programs they can truly trust with so many online education providers springing up all over the place! The only slight issue with the rankings are that they only contain the top 15 business schools and hopefully this is something QS will address in future updates as not everybody is lucky enough to be accepted/able to afford a top business school!
The rankings are truly global, however, the UK has done particularly well with 6 entries in the top 15! Rather ironically, given the financial turmoil in Spain, IE Business School claims top spot!
The ranking table looks like this:
1. Instituto De Empresa (IE Business School), Spain
2. University of Warwick, UK
3. Manchester University, UK
4. Thunderbird School of Global Management, US
5. Indiana University, US
6. Imperial College, London UK
7. Durham University, UK
8. Euro MBA, Netherlands
9. Penn State University, US
10. Temple University, US
11. Drexel University, US
12. Henley University of Reading, UK
13. Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland, UK
14. UT Dallas, US
15. Arizona State University, US
