American University’s Online MBA Shines in National and International Rankings

The Kogod School of Business's focus on experiential learning is the key to its success and a blueprint for the future.

By  | 

Since launching in 2015, Kogod’s online graduate programs have set a standard for other schools to follow. Our innovative teaching methods and dedication to providing students with hands-on, experiential learning have resulted in strong rankings that only continue to improve.

This year, Kogod’s online MBA program has been ranked 12th best for management and seventh best for marketing by US News & World Report. In the latest CEO Magazine, the online MBA ranked 17th in North America, while QS ranked it sixth in the US and 19th in the world. 

 “These ranking results only tell part of the full picture,” says the director of online programs, Eric-Enrico Hunt. “The full story includes all the hard work from Kogod faculty, staff, and students to create an environment that puts into practice Kogod’s mission of using business as a force for meaningful change.” 

Kogod’s blueprint for success comes from our core belief that students learn best by doing. By investing in both our faculty and immersive learning opportunities, students apply their classroom knowledge to real-world business problems, making them field-tested and ready to thrive in any setting. 

We know that completing a full-time MBA program can be difficult for anyone balancing work and personal responsibilities, which is why we continue to develop and expand our specialized online programs to meet the needs of both students and employers. We look forward to applying our approach to the online undergraduate experience this fall, building on the strategy that we have been practicing and perfecting.
