A recent BusinessStudent.com study ranked eight Georgia universities on its list of the nation’s top 200 online MBA programs. These include Columbus State University at No. 16, Mercer University – Atlanta at No. 48, Kennesaw State University at No. 73, University of West Georgia at No. 103, Georgia College at No. 105, Georgia Southern University at No. 112, Brenau University at No. 133 and Valdosta State University at No. 149.
The rankings reflect analysis of five criteria: tuition, accreditation, acceptance rate, student support and engagement. More than 100 former online MBA students and professionals helped define the study methodology and 83 percent ranked tuition as their top consideration when choosing a program. While traditional MBA enrollment numbers are down, online programs are experiencing record enrollment because of lower tuition costs and the ability to study from anywhere. More than 300 colleges and universities now offer online MBAs, which is nearly double the number of programs that existed two years ago.
