Business school earns top online MBA ranking

November 20, 2014

Affordable Colleges Foundation, a leading resource for online learning and college affordability information, recently published a new list of the Best Online MBA Programs for 2014-2015.  The online MBA program at Emporia State was ranked No. 42 in the nation, and the only Kansas college mentioned on the list.

Affordable Colleges Foundation ranks programs based on cost, quality and student support metrics. This organization began in 2011 to provide quality data and information about pursuing an affordable higher education.

“We are extremely excited to receive this ranking,” said Dr. Kristie Ogilvie, dean of the School of Business. “It is just another testament to the exceptional education we provide at Emporia State.”

Data from over 500 schools were analyzed to create the criteria for this ranking.  Schools listed offer online MBA programs that stand out among peer universities with full accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), hold low student-teaching ratios and have faculty who demonstrate excellence in business and management.
