Consistently ranked among the nation’s top programs for some time, the University of Mississippi’s online Master of Business Administration degree program has been ranked No. 1 based on what students feel are the most important factors when choosing a college for post-graduate studies.

Working with data from the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA that explains the most important factors for students, the College Choice ranking system determined that the Ole Miss online MBA program had the highest values in areas students are looking for as they make decisions on where to pursue a degree.

The survey system gives weight equally to four parts of evaluation done by graduates and students in the program. These parts include a school’s academic reputation, value, career success for graduates and overall cost.

“Because location is by definition less of a factor in online learning, our online MBA rankings are based primarily on reputation and affordability,” said Robert Hand of College Choice. “And as you move your way up the list, you will find a unique balance between these two important considerations when evaluating what fits best for a student, their present opportunities and their aspirations.”

The university’s online MBA program is also ranked among the country’s top 25 online MBA programs by U.S. News and World Report.

“We are especially pleased to hear that this latest high ranking is based around the factors that actual students feel they need to be successful,” said Ashley Jones, the university’s director of MBA administration. “We collaborate with faculty and alumni to make sure the online MBA program is as highly-engaging and inspiring as the in-person program.”
