Best Affordable AACSB Accredited Online MBA get ranking seal

The 79 Best Affordable AACSB Online MBA Programs

If you are seeking an online MBA, choosing an AACSB-accredited business school is a wise decision. AACSB accreditation is an internationally-recognized mark of excellence in business education. Fewer than 10% of all online MBA programs in the United States are AACSB-accredited.

The future is bright for graduates of MBA programs. Recent data from the Graduate Management Admission Council reveals the demand for business school graduates is expected to climb upward. Over 90% of companies surveyed plan to hire an MBA graduate, and the median salary for MBA grads will be right around $100,000!

But, an AACSB online MBA can come with a hefty price tag—as high as $104,000! GetEducated compared the cost of 185 MBA programs from 111 AACSB-accredited online schools. Our rankings reveal the most affordable AACSB online MBA programs in the US allowing you to get the highest caliber education for a community college price.

Average Cost (In-state): $37,022.07
Least Expensive: Fayetteville State University ~ $ 6,558.00
Most Expensive: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ~ $104,658.84

We use fact-based, data-driven research to create a truly reliable system of scientific rankings. Our rankings cannot be bought, allowing anyone interested in an AACSB online MBA to see what schools offer the most affordable programs. The AACSB online MBA programs listed above the red dividing line are official 2016 “Best Buys” and cost less than the national average.
 

Most Affordable AACSB Online MBA Programs

 

Rankings Note: These online MBA rankings are based on a Spring 2016 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 (Spring 2016) and reflect part-time attendance rates. 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 AACSB 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.

Editorial Note: Colleges NEVER pay to be included in the Get Educated online MBA rankings. These rankings are editorially independent, open to any AACSB accredited university which offers a degree that is delivered at least 75% 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 AACSB accredited and not currently surveyed by Get Educated, please contact us for inclusion. Each affordability ranking list is calculated every two years. The next online MBA rankings will be undertaken Spring 2018.
