Best Affordable AACSB Online MBA Programs
If you are seeking an online MBA, choosing an AACSB-accredited business school is a wise decision. AACSB accreditation is an internationally-recognized mark of excellence in business education. Fewer than 10% of all online MBA programs in the United States are AACSB-accredited.
The future is bright for graduates of MBA programs. Recent data from the Graduate Management Admission Council reveals the demand for business school graduates is expected to climb upward. Over 90% of companies surveyed plan to hire an MBA graduate, and the median salary for MBA grads will be right around $100,000!
But, an AACSB online MBA can come with a hefty price tag—as high as $104,000! GetEducated compared the cost of 185 MBA programs from 111 AACSB-accredited online schools.

Best AACSB Online MBA Programs
Rankings Note: These online MBA rankings are based on a Spring 2016 distance learning survey of AACSB accredited or accredited university candidates which offer online master’s in Business Administration. Tuition and fees stated were valid at the time of collection (Spring 2016) and reflect part-time attendance rates. Profiles for each distance degree in the Get Educated online college directory may reflect slightly different costs based on a different update schedule.
The published cost is an estimated sticker price for the entire AACSB online MBA and typically reflects the most affordable, cheapest distance degree program. Factors such as transfer credits at entrance, prerequisite online course requirements, and financial aid will affect your final purchase price.
Editorial Note: Colleges NEVER pay to be included in the Get Educated online MBA rankings. These rankings are editorially independent, open to any AACSB accredited university which offers a degree that is delivered at least 75% at a distance and open to the public. There is no cost to use the Get Educated Best Buy award seals, should your degree appear on these rankings.
If your online university is AACSB accredited and not currently surveyed by Get Educated, please contact us for inclusion. Each affordability ranking list is calculated every two years. The next online MBA rankings will be undertaken Spring 2018.
