The program, offered by CSU’s D. Abbott Turner College of Business, jumped 29 spots from last year on the list of “Best Online MBA Programs,” making it one of the top two online MBA degree programs in Georgia, behind only Kennesaw State University.

“For the past two decades, our stakeholder groups have invested heavily to increase the quality of the academic programs offered by the Turner College of Business,” said Linda Hadley, dean of CSU’s Turner College of Business. “We achieved this first by obtaining AACSB initial accreditation in 2003. We are pleased now not only to be listed, but to have significantly advanced our placement in the rankings over the course of one year. This positions CSU’s online MBA as the second highest ranked program in the consortium, and we take great pride in the strong message that our performance sends to our current stakeholders as well as to prospective students, faculty and donors.”

U.S. News and World Report ranked each program using five categories: student engagement, admissions selectivity, peer reputation, faculty credentials and training, and student services and technology.

In 2016, CSU’s online MBA was ranked the No. 12 top global online MBA by CEO Magazine and the No. 12 most affordable MBA program by Top Management Degrees.
