The college ranking remains strong with Saunders College earning Top 10 placements the past four years since the inception of the Princeton Review’s comprehensive rankings of online MBA program in 2015.
Fifty-six percent of graduates from Saunders’ online Executive MBA program reported receiving a promotion, with an average salary increase of 24 percent, while attending the program. The fully customizable program is known as being rigorous, high-touch and collaborative, with an international immersion trip and relevant coursework and assignments culminating in a capstone project where students serve as consultants to actual businesses.
“Our Executive MBA programs are a hallmark of the Saunders College of Business,” said Dean Jacqueline Mozrall. “As we continue to work with students from around the country and internationally, we are proud that our executive program offerings integrate executive leadership and management principles, while leveraging technology to develop executives who are innovative, confident and ready to lead in business today and in the future.”
The result of The Princeton Review’s fourth annual ranking of the top 25 online MBA programs for 2019 is available at www.princetonreview.com/best-business-schools along with FAQs about the basis for each ranking, including detailed profiles of the schools.
“We’re absolutely delighted that our Executive MBA faculty and students have earned national recognition for their achievements,” said Martin Lawlor, director of the Executive MBA program at Saunders College. “And, given the increasingly competitive market, our continued presence among the nation’s top online MBA programs is great validation for students, faculty and staff alike.”
