The Princeton Review surveyed more than 4,700 online MBA students at more than 75 business schools offering online MBAs to come up with this year’s list of Top 25 Online MBA programs in 2018. Indiana University at Bloomington took first place. Rochester Institute of Technology’s Saunders College ranked 8th.

“Top business schools now offer online MBAs, and employers do see them as credible and valuable,” said Robert Franek, editor-in-chief of the Princeton Review. “For working professionals unable to move to a ‘brick and mortar’ campus for an MBA, these schools offer an opportunity to learn from some of the world’s best business school professors and earn their degree from anywhere in the world.”

Saunders College’s online executive MBA program also earned high placements in the last three years since the inception of the Princeton Review’s comprehensive rankings of online MBA programs in 2015. Its online executive MBA program was cited by students for its “well-known, rigorous and accelerated program” that delivers 47 credit hours in 17 months of study, an international immersion trip that is “a huge benefit to attending RIT,” and “real-life courses and assignments” culminating in a capstone project where students serve as consultants to actual businesses. “A whopping 50 percent” of graduates reported receiving a promotion while attending the program.
