GAINESVILLE, Fla. – For the eighth consecutive year, UF MBA at the University of Florida Warrington College of Business was named among the top 5 public universities on U.S. News & World Report’s “2020 Best Online MBA Programs” list. With a score of 95 out of 100, it is the No. 4 best online MBA program in the nation and No. 3 best online MBA program among public universities in the United States.

“At UF MBA, we’re proud of the fact that we’ve offered a quality online education for more than 20 years,” said John Gresley, Assistant Dean and Director of UF MBA. “Being named among the top 5 programs in the nation since the inaugural U.S. News Online MBA ranking, which represents nearly half of UF MBA Online’s existence, sets a high bar and drives us to continue providing a modern, flexible and preeminent online business education to our students. Our sustained success wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated efforts of our world-class faculty and staff in admissions, student affairs, instructional design and IT support.”

To create its annual Best Online MBA Programs rankings, U.S. News sent surveys to the 335 schools that offer online MBAs. The rankings were based on five weighted categories: Engagement (30 percent), Student Excellence (15 percent), Expert Opinion (25 percent), Faculty Credentials and Training (15 percent), and Student Services and Technology (15 percent).

  • Student Excellence score – 94 (out of 100); ranked No. 6 overall
  • Expert Opinion score – 3.8 (on a scale of 1-5); ranked No. 5 overall

In the Student Excellence category, which measures GMAT and GRE scores, work experience, undergraduate GPA and the school’s overall acceptance rate, UF MBA was ranked in the top 10 overall for a fifth year in a row.
