Online Business School Rankings

The business school you choose to go to could have a big impact on how your career turns out. This is doubly true of online schools, where it can be harder to seperate the wheat from the chaff. In order to help you make an informed decision, we've got in touch with all 3,000 accredited online schools in the US to find out which ones are the best for business.

As a prospective business student, you will be well aware that the methodology of a ranking, or how it weights the different criteria, can have a big effect on its conclusions. That's why we've opted not to touch the figures at all, but to rank schools simply by graduation rate. We've also included information we think would be useful, regarding cost, size, and admissions policies.

Details: All figures are based on the most recent statistics available, either from the 2007-08 or the 2008-09 school year. The costs of tuition and fees, and books and supplies, are estimates provided by the schools, and any information not provided is marked with a dash.
