The Financial Times has released the 2021 edition of its Online MBA Ranking. For the fourth time in a row, the Distance Learning MBA from the UK's Warwick Business School leads the ranking. It's followed by the Global Online MBA offered by IE Business School, which has retained the runner-up spot for four years in a row.
Regardless of the top two positions, the ranking has changed somewhat, due to the addition of some new entrants in the table. The Global Online MBA, offered by the UK's Imperial College Business School, is the highest-ranked new entrant in position number three. It's followed by the Online MBA offered by UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School and then Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, which were also ranked in the fourth and fifth, respectively, last year.
The University of Utah's MBA Online is another new entrant, in position number 13.
A total of 30 schools competed for the 15 spots in this ranking. To be considered for this ranking, a school's Online MBA must have run for at least four years and must be accredited by AACSB or EQUIS.
