UF MBA Online Program remains in the nation’s top 5

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – UF MBA at the Warrington College of Business ranked fifth among publics in U.S. News & World Report’s “2018 Best Online MBA Programs” rankings released Tuesday.

UF MBA’s Online Program has ranked in the top 5 among U.S. publics since U.S. News & World Report began publishing its annual rankings of online MBA programs six years ago. It scored 87 out of a possible 100 points to receive the No. 6 spot overall.

“We’ve been committed to providing an outstanding online education for students for nearly two decades,” said John Gresley, Assistant Dean and Director of UF MBA. “It wouldn’t be possible without the commitment and innovation of our exceptional faculty, as well as talented staff in student affairs, career services, instructional design and information technology. This recognition pushes us to continue delivering a state-of-the-art, exceptional and flexible online MBA education for our students.

To create its annual Best Online MBA Programs rankings, U.S. News sent surveys to the 282 schools that offer online MBAs. The rankings were based on five weighted categories: Student Engagement (28 percent), Admissions Selectivity (25 percent), Peer Reputation (25 percent), Faculty Credentials and Training (11 percent), and Student Services and Technology (11 percent).

UF MBA scored 80 points (out of 100) or more in three of the four categories. UF MBA scored 84 points in Admissions Selectivity, 81 points in Student Engagement and 80 points in Faculty Credentials and Training.

In the Admissions Selectivity category, which measures GMAT and GRE scores, work experience, undergraduate GPA and the school’s overall acceptance rate, UF MBA was ranked No. 5 overall for a third year in a row.

As a pioneer in online education, UF MBA has long been recognized as one of the best online programs in the world. The Financial Times ranked UF MBA the No. 2 program among U.S. publics and the No. 5 program overall in its “Online MBA 2017 Rankings.” It also ranked UF MBA No. 1 in program delivery in 2017. The Princeton Review ranked UF MBA No. 4 among U.S. publics and No. 5 overall in its “Top 25 Online MBA Programs 2018.”

In keeping with its innovative roots, UF MBA also recently established a fully online program that allows students to pursue their MBA at a top ten university from anywhere in the world. The fully online program spans 24 months and does not require a single visit to campus. In addition, UF MBA offers 16-month and 27-month hybrid programs that require occasional campus visits.
