Top 25 Online MBA Programs

Overview

The MBA or Masters in Business Administration may be the zenith in the formal education of the aspiring business professional. It’s a degree often earned after several years of employment; in fact, some MBA programs require real-world business experience before enrolling. Pursuit of an MBA can be a burden both in cost and time. So is it worth the effort? In a peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Education for Business in 2010 concluded that salary-wise, the data speaks for itself.

The study concluded that post-MBA starting pay was up 50% over pre-MBA pay for full-time students. As an example, if your pay before starting an MBA happened to be $50,000, you might expect to be offered $75,000 salary plus bonus (up 50%) at graduation. By the end of five years post-MBA, Fifth Year Pay was up 80% over Post-MBA Starting Pay for full-time students. Perhaps this is one reason why in 2011-2012, the last year for which data is available, 191,571 people graduated from U.S. schools with advanced degrees in business, some 25.4% of all the master’s degrees conferred. That compares with 178,062 master’s degrees in education, or 23.6%, of all the advanced degrees.

The following is a compilation of a ranking of reputable, online-only MBA programs, taking into account what matters to you — program reputation, and perhaps just as important, price. Combining MBA program rankings from esteemed, trusted publications including The Economist, U.S. News, and Bloomberg Businessweek.
