OAKLAND, CA, October 14, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Poets&Quants, the definitive online publication for business education news, has unveiled its 2020 ranking of The Best Online MBA Programs. Topping this year's list as the #1 online business school in the country is Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business Online MBA.
"This third annual ranking is a tighter, more competitive grouping than we have seen," said Nathan Allen, Poets&Quants special projects editor. "The result is a dynamically changing landscape of the top programs as we see innovation, pricing, and customization all factor in to the quality of a program."
This ranking is a central feature of Poets&Quants' comprehensive Online MBA Hub. A one-of-a-kind resource, the Online MBA Hub offers advice, rankings analysis, a searchable, in-depth directory of school profiles, and other tools to help prospective students navigate the complex online MBA landscape.

Poets&Quants based its rankings on three core dimensions of the programs:
1) The quality of the incoming students
2) An assessment by graduates of the MBA experience, both the academic and the extracurricular activities
3) The career outcomes of a program's graduates
Data for the third annual Poets&Quants ranking of online MBA programs was gathered from both school and alumni surveys. The school survey asked for a wide variety of data points, from admission standards to global immersion trips. The alumni survey sought recent graduates' impressions on a range of topics, as well as whether the program fulfilled their expectations and whether they would recommend it to others. Alumni were surveyed between June and September of this year. In all, 8,381 alumni received the survey and 1,583 responded, for a total response rate of about 19%.
