December 14, 2020—The Princeton Review ranks Marist College’s fully online MBA program in the top 50 nationally, according to a survey released earlier this week.


The Princeton Review selected programs based on their 2019-20 survey of administrators at more than 125 business schools offering online MBAs. The Review also factored in data from more than 6,000 students enrolled in the schools' online MBA programs. More than 60 data points were weighed to determine the list and rankings. Marist’s program was ranked #41.


Launched in 1998, Marist’s program was New York State’s first AACSB-accredited, fully online MBA program—and one of the first such programs in the nation. The AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) is the premier business school accrediting body, and it accredits less than five percent of business programs worldwide.


“This is an exciting honor. Our fully online MBA program is accessible to all yet academically rigorous,” said Roger Norton, Interim Dean of Marist’s School of Management. “Students in the program come from a wide range of interesting backgrounds. Many have traditional business management degrees, but, many more come to their MBA from accounting, banking, brokerage, engineering, systems analysis, IT, health care, and marketing. Our program is dynamic, marked by a wide range of students who broaden each other’s perspectives.”


The flexible program offers five different start times and concentrations in ethical leadership, health care administration, and finance management. A business analytics focus is infused throughout the course of study. The program and is also regularly recognized by U.S. News as a “Best Online Program.”
