Article Body:
The MBA stands for masters’ in business administration and is a post
graduate degree in business administration. The ranking system comes into
play because the MBA is one of the country’s highest rated and most
popular graduate masters’ degree programs. Online MBA rankings refer to
the schools that offer the program and, in fact, factor in to establish a
ranking system that helps prospective students find the best MBA
possibilities in the country. The online MBA rankings hold to a set of
criteria that refer to where the school or program is positioned in the
overall ranking system.

As more universities start to offer the degree, the differences in the
quality of the programs and of faculty at the schools are important in
terms of how the graduates are prepared for the real world of business.
In addition, the differences in the courses offered needs to be evaluated
and compared to other programs, to determine the ranking of the program.
Online MBA rankings are available on several web sites to help the
prospective students come up with a way to rate and discover the ranking
of the schools they may consider attending.

Determining the MBA Rankings

As MBA programs became more prevalent, various publications in newsprint
and in magazines began to talk about the differences in the programs.
From this, a series of informal rankings began to emerge and people
started to rank the programs as a way of comparison. Eventually,
periodical publications became popular and these contained the MBA
rankings. Online MBA rankings were, of course, the next logical step in
distributing these rankings to the public. Several magazines, such as
Forbes, dedicate large amounts of issues to the MBA rankings each year.

Online MBA rankings follow a set of criteria that are determined by the
study committee. The committee for studying the rankings comes up with a
set of criteria based on the actual course itself, on the faculty, and on
the location of the MBA course. From there, the ranking is set up and the
schools are compared based on the online MBA rankings. They are then
listed in order from best to worst and distributed with details attached
to each listing. From this organization of information, selecting your
online MBA program becomes a simpler task.
