Auburn Online MBA Moves Up in Princeton Review Ranking
The Princeton Review today released its 2018 annual ranking of the Top 25 Online MBA programs, and Auburn University’s Online MBA improved one spot to No. 13 in this year's national review of top business schools.
This ranking comes on the heels of a top 10 ranking of Best Online MBA Programs by U.S. News and World Report earlier this year.
The Princeton Review surveyed more than 4,700 online MBA students at more than 75 business schools to come up with its list of Top 25 online MBA programs. Survey criteria focused on five core areas: academics, selectivity, faculty, technical platforms and career outcomes.
"This ranking reflects the dedication of our faculty and staff to developing some of the best graduate business professionals in the country," said Jim Parrish, director of Full-time and Online MBA programs in Auburn's Raymond J. Harbert College of Business. "More importantly, it shows that our students are pleased with their online learning experience, as well as its positive impact on career advancement and earning potential."
Auburn offers Full-Time, Online, Executive and Physicians Executive MBA programs. The Online MBA is the largest of the four with nearly 400 students from 41 different states. Auburn has been a leader in distance learning since 1989. Today, online students view digital recordings of Full-Time MBA classes at their convenience. Online students have the experience of being in the back of the classroom while continuing to balance career or family obligations.
“In addition to offering a high quality program with very satisfied students, our program also delivers an outstanding return on students’ investment of time, effort and money” said Associate Dean and Luck Professor, Stan Harris. “While program cost is not a factor in The Princeton Review’s ranking, Auburn’s costs are among the lowest. Our Online MBA is priced 40 percent lower than the average costs among the top 25. This combination of affordability and quality equates to an incredible value proposition for our students."
“For working professionals unable to move to a 'brick and mortar' campus for an MBA, these schools offer an opportunity to learn from some of the world's best business school professors and earn their degree from anywhere in the world," said Robert Franek, Editor-in-Chief, The Princeton Review.
