The publication released its inaugural ranking of the best online MBA programs on April 26, ranking AUM 63rd nationally and first among public Alabama universities.

“We are delighted to be honored by Fortune ,” AUM College of Business Dean Ross Dickens said. “This recognition underscores our commitment to quality, as well as convenience and flexibility for students who are balancing career and family demands. During the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular, we have found that our students appreciate the self-paced environment we offer.”

AUM’s MBA program allows students to choose online, in-person, or hybrid (a blend of online and campus-based) learning options. Students complete a 10-course program that helps them build knowledge and skills in accounting, marketing, finance, data analysis, information management, strategic analysis, business communication, and personnel management.

Students can complete the program in three semesters, if taking a full course load, while most graduate within two years. While the program traditionally requires a GMAT score as part of the admissions process, standardized test scores have temporarily been waived during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fortune’s rankings factored in a program assessment, average GMAT scores and undergraduate grade point averages, student body size, alumni outcomes, “brand score,” and program prestige.
