MELBOURNE, FLA. — For the second consecutive year, Florida Tech’s online MBA program has been ranked among the nation’s best by Fortune magazine.
The magazine launched its Best Online MBA Programs ranking in 2021. This year, Florida Tech was one of just six Florida universities on the exclusive list, which featured just over 100 online MBA programs nationwide.
“To help guide the next generation of business leaders, Fortune found online MBA programs that not only see their graduates land good jobs, but also have a track record of placing alumni into the highest echelons of the Fortune 500,” Fortune’s Lance Lambert wrote in an article accompanying the rankings.
The ranking components brought together a host of metrics and measurements.
Program score: Calculated using a 32-question form, this metric measured the academic strength of incoming students by factoring average undergraduate GPA and average GMAT scores of incoming students, along with student body size, one-year retention rate and graduation rate.
Brand score: Working with Ipsos, Fortune surveyed thousands of business professionals and hiring managers to get their thoughts on specific business schools overall, not just online programs.
Fortune 1000 score: This looked at the number of each school’s MBA alumni who are executives (C-suite only) at Fortune 1000 companies.
The Fortune rankings join a host of accolades for Florida Tech’s online business programs, including in U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 Best Online Bachelor’s Programs, The Princeton Review’s Top 50 Online MBA programs, and Great Business Schools list of top online cybersecurity MBA programs.
