*Updated on January 25 at 4:01PM: Temple’s online MBA program had mistakenly misreported the number of new entrants into their program. The program has been moved to the ‘Unranked’ category. The Philadelphia Business Journal covered the story.
For the fourth year in a row, U.S. News and World Report ranked Temple University’s online MBA program #1 in the U.S.
U.S. News ranked programs based on student engagement, faculty credentials, and difficulty of admissions. According to the Philadelphia Business Journal, student engagement in the Temple MBA program was remarkably high.
“Convenience and flexibility are critical components of high-quality, online-based programs, and as these programs grow in popularity, we at Fox are proud to deliver programs that are yearly ranked as either the best in the nation or among the best in their respective categories,” said Fox School Dean M. Moshe Porat in a press release.
Approximately 1,500 programs were evaluated in this year’s report, up from 1,200 in 2017.
Villanova University was also named as having the best online business non-MBA program in the U.S. Both Temple and Villanova are two of 102 colleges and universities in the Greater Philadelphia region, one of the highest concentrations of higher education institutions in the country.
