Article body

Auburn’s Harbert College of Business Online MBA continues to be ranked among the nation’s best programs by The Princeton Review, based on both surveys of administrators and enrolled students.

Auburn ranks 14th and is the only ranked online program in the state of Alabama and was one of only two Southeastern Conference schools making the top 25.

The Princeton Review recently released its second annual ranking of business schools offering the best online MBA programs, in partnership this year with Entrepreneur magazine. The list, along with in-depth profiles of the schools and advice for applicants, can be viewed at and The full rankings are published in the October issue of Entrepreneur.

The ranking is based on surveys of more than 90 business schools offering online MBAs, at which a majority of their program was online, plus surveys of more than 3,800 students enrolled in the programs.

“We are excited that the quality of education provided and our students’ experience place our program among the best in the country,” said Stan Harris, associate dean of Graduate and International Programs. “We strive to create an online classroom experience on par with the experience of our on-campus students. At the end of the day, we want our students to feel that they are truly part of a world-class MBA program and a member of the Auburn Family. We are also particularly proud that our program is priced lower than many of the other schools in the top 25, which only magnifies the return on investment our program offers our students.”

“For many working professionals, the campus MBA is not a viable option due to career and family demands,” said Jim Parrish, director of Campus and Online MBA programs. “Auburn’s online MBA is designed for the busy professional and features video of live, instructor-led classroom lectures that students can watch live or later as their schedule allows. This innovative delivery method is the next best thing to sitting in the classroom and experiencing the back-and-forth discussion between professor and students.”
