College Choice Releases 2017 Ranking of the 50 Best Online MBA Degrees

College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2017 ranking for the 50 Best Online MBA Degrees.

Online MBA degrees offer many of the same challenges as traditional MBAs, and a few perks that traditional MBAs can’t offer. With program offerings in a variety of business-related fields, like operations, HR, finance, and marketing, the online MBA gives students the time and flexibility they need to build a career while going to school.

“Earning a Master’s of Business Administration is considered to be one of the business world’s highest academic achievements, but what do you do if you can’t pack up and leave your job or city?” Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. “Luckily, in the past 15 years many of the world’s finest business programs have been adapting to trends in digital education to accommodate diverse student populations all over the globe through their online programs.”

College Choice developed the 2017 ranking for the 50 Best Online MBA Degrees using a few key factors, including overall cost, financial aid, and post-degree career success. This information was researched using a variety of publicly available resources, including the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA,, individual school websites, and the National Center for Education Statistics.
