Overall, ODU has been a leader in distance learning since the mid-1980s. The university now offers more than 120 online programs and has awarded more than 20,000 degrees as of May. Its programs are consistently rated as the best in the country.
The Online MBA report includes Virginia, Rhode Island, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and the District of Columbia in its East Coast rankings.
Other Virginia schools in the top 25 in the East are the College of William & Mary (No. 11), George Mason University (No. 16) and James Madison University (No. 19). With four schools getting ranked, Virginia is tied for second in the East with Massachusetts. Pennsylvania, led by Penn State University at number 1, topped the list with seven schools.
The organization evaluates more than 400 US-based online MBA programs and gathers information through a survey asking schools offering online MBA programs for their input on which schools they view as “the best.” In recent years, ranking criteria have included factors such as admission selectivity, tuition-related grades, and enrollment. For 2022, the only online MBA Report ranking factor is reputation.
