"I'm proud of this ranking, especially since so many new programs with great reputations have recently entered the market," says Associate Dean of Graduate Business Programs Kate Klepper. "This speaks volumes about the quality of our Online MBA program."

To be ranked, schools must be internationally accredited and at least 70 percent of their program content must be delivered online. In this second-annual ranking, 18 schools made the cut. 

The 2015 ranking is based on surveys of schools and of alumni who graduated in 2011. Alumni were asked to rate how well their degree was delivered online and the level of interaction with peers and academic staff. Specific categories include "salary today," "value for money," "career progress," and "aims achieved" among others.
