FT Online MBA Ranking 2015?


maury

Hey, does anybody know if the FT is going to update its online MBA ranking for 2015? Or is it a biennial ranking? I can't seem to find any info about it on the FT website.

Ah, there it is. Looks like it will be published this month, in case anybody else is interested.

I have sent FT an email to ask but they said that they had updated the Global MBA ranking 2015 in Jan and asked me to refer to that ranking. They didn't explain further whether online MBA ranking would be released in March. So, I won't expect the online MBA ranking will be released in March this year.

I am taking bets that they will stick to their published schedule, and that they did not give you a considered reply because you are not buying advertising. They sell a lot of advertising with rankings, and there's reason for them to drop them.

Open University is out, as is Thunderbird. Massachussets Amherst - Isenberg is a new addition, as is Florida International University: Chapman. Otherwise pretty much the same as last year.

Given that and the fact that there are only 15 schools included, this ranking is really not that interesting. I'd prefer to see it rank at least 50 programs, given how many accredited online MBA programs there are just in the US.

I guess for people who choose to do the online MBAs from IE and Warwick, it's a great validation, so there is that.

Thunderbird's out because that school doesn't offer MBA programs anymore. It merged with ASU Carey, whose online MBA program is currently ranked 12th on this list.
