Missouri S&T’s online MBA program has been ranked No. 14 of the top 25 Best AACSB Accredited Online MBA Programs by Guide to Online Schools, 2020. Other universities on the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) list include University of Southern California, Carnegie Mellon University, Indiana University and Purdue University.
“This ranking places our online MBA program among the best of the best,” says Dr. Keng Siau, Missouri S&T’s chair and professor of business and information technology. “This is a strong testament to the quality of our business programs. Our enrollment is strong, and we are committed to continuously enhancing our programs because we focus on student success.”
With an average of 60 U.S. and international MBA candidates a semester, Siau says S&T’s online MBA program is the right size for faculty to give students the individual attention they need and large enough to provide them opportunities to interact with colleagues from various industries and countries.
AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools and programs. Fewer than 5% of the world’s 13,000 college business programs have earned AACSB accreditation and within that group, 2,452 AACSB-accredited online degrees are offered by 188 schools.
The schools were ranked by their average graduate management admission test (GMAT) scores, which ranged from 708 to 597 with S&T averaging 610.
Other program data including available degrees, tuition and details about coursework were collected from official college websites, reflecting data for the 2018-19 academic year. Programmatic accreditation and profit status of the schools was collected from the accrediting agency website or from the National Center for Education Statistics.
