  • Unless I just missed something, the PDF file I downloaded only shows about the top 10-20 online degree programs. Am I going to have to go to USNews &World Reports to get a “full” 169 programs list?

    It will be interesting to see how University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign’s iMBA program will fare in these online rankings in the coming years. Not only is it aiming to be cheaper than Auburn’s (US$20K all-in), but is hoping to piggyback off the bricks and mortar MBA top 50 rank (in accounting).
