Distance Learning MBA features in QS world rankings


Our Distance Learning MBA is rated 27th in the world in the latest QS Distance Online MBA Rankings 2017.

QS (Quacquarelli Symonds), one of the leading providers of World University Rankings, have released the fifth edition of their annual QS Distance Online MBA Rankings. The table ranks the world’s top 40 programmes, serving as a valuable information source for prospective students.

Nunzio Quacquarelli, CEO at QS Quacquarelli Symonds, said: “QS distance online MBA ranking is unique in evaluating opportunities for interaction with class-mates and professors as well as looking at the reputation with employers. The technology behind online learning continues to advance, improving the learner experience. But data on completion rates and employer feedback reinforces the view that the blended model including some physical meet-ups is most effective.”

QS have also seen an increase in interest in part-time and online MBAs – they are now on the radar of around a third and nearly one in five MBA applicants, respectively. In the case of the latter, the increased interest can be ascribed to the rapidly increasing quality of online MBA provision. In this increasingly competitive market it is a fantastic accolade for our distance learning MBA to feature in these rankings.
