AU ranked 16th among business schools with online MBA programs

30 May

The Lowder Business Building is home to the Auburn University College of Business.

The Auburn University College of Business is ranked No. 16 nationally among business schools that offer online MBA programs, according to online business publication Poets & Quants.

This new honor comes on the heels of a number of high rankings the college has earned in 2013. In January, U.S. News & World Report ranked the College of Business’ MBA distance program seventh nationally among public schools. The college’s Executive MBA (EMBA) program was named “Best Remote Learning Program in North America in 2012” by European CEO Magazine this spring.

“This recognition of quality of our online MBA program is appreciated and much deserved.  Our faculty and staff do a remarkable job delivering a superior education to our students,” said Auburn University College of Business Dean and Wells Fargo Professor Bill Hardgrave. “The ranking is another indication of the reputation we have built as a provider of quality graduate education, whether it is face-to-face, online, or blended – our commitment to excellence is evident in all our programs.”

“We have been an innovator in online education for almost 20 years and continue to push the envelope to deliver a high quality education where, when, and how it is needed.”

Other than Florida, Auburn is the only university in the Southeastern Conference ranked in the Top 20.

Of the schools ranked in the Top 20, Auburn’s total program cost of $27,000 was by far the least. The average tuition for schools in the Top 20 is $58,500.
