Acceptance Rates for the Online MBA


Leo Sala

Hi Guys,

Can anyone share reliable acceptance rates for the Online MBA programs of these commonly discussed UK universities here (e.g. Bradford, Warwick, Durham, MMU, Aston, Strathclyde etc.)? Also, do you have any information on whether the acceptance rates are going down due to a probably higher number of online applicants caused by the pandemic?

Cheers!
Leo

I don't think most - if any - of these business schools make this information public. 

In general they'll be less competitive than ranked full-time MBA programs. I've read that the UIUC Online MBA has an acceptance rate of around 40%. That seems roughly correct and I'd imagine that most of the 'best' Online MBA programs have acceptance rates of between 20 and 40 percent. 

Maybe the rates have gone down marginally since the pandemic started? I don't think we'll have a clear sense of this until next year. But most of these Online MBAs are designed to be easily scalable, so they'll probably just increase their class sizes if there's more demand.

I'm in the process of applying for a couple of programs. Of those only Boston University have mentioned it: they said they had a 55% acceptance rate for their 2020 intake.
