Rankings Note:
 These online MBA 
rankings are based on a Fall 2013 distance learning survey of regionally accredited or accredited university candidates which offer online master's in Business Administration. Tuition and fees stated were valid at the time of collection (Fall 2013). Profiles for each distance degree in the Get Educated online college directory may reflect slightly different costs based on a different update schedule.

The published cost is an estimated sticker price for the entire MBA online program and typically reflects the most affordable, cheapest distance degree program. Factors such as transfer credits at entrance, prerequisite online course requirements, and financial aid will affect your final purchase price.


Editorial Note: Colleges NEVER pay to be included in the Get Educated online MBA rankings. These rankings are editorially independent, open to any regionally accredited university which offers a degree that is delivered at least 80% at a distance and open to the public. There is no cost to use the Get Educated Best Buy award seals, should your degree appear on these rankings.

If your online university is regionally accredited and not currently surveyed by Get Educated, please contact us for inclusion. Each affordability ranking list is calculated every two years. The next MBA program rankings will be undertaken Fall 2015.
