Online MBAs Directory and Program Details

The Big Book of Online MBAs

The Big Book of Online MBAs is the first book ever published that presents key details on the program characteristics of these programs and a directory with the names and locations of these programs. Researching to find the best online MBA is more difficult than ever before because the number of online MBAs is large and growing very quickly. There were only 90 online MBAs in 2011 compared to more than 470 in late September 2017! This is an amazing growth story with significant implications for many different audiences.

The rise of the online MBA:

  • opened up a large, new audience of prospective students searching for the best online MBA programs
  • allowed working adults to complete an MBA and develop their career prospects without having to leave their jobs

Challenges for universities include:

  • online MBA programs have to work hard to prove that online education is equal in value to traditional face-to-face education
  • managing resistance to change among those who are an integral part of the critical path to success for delivering the best online education

And the market faces:

  • crippling amounts of choice in program options for students that makes researching the best programs very time-intensive and confusing for prospective students
  • skyrocketing advertising costs and strong competition for universities in a cluttered advertising space
