Rankings Note: These online MBA rankings are based on a Fall 2013 distance learning survey of AACSB 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 online MBA 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.
