There’s plenty to think about when choosing the right MBA and a key factor to consider is reputation.

Aston Business School is in the top one per cent of business schools worldwide with triple accreditation from AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS, the leading accreditation bodies for business schools in the UK, USA and Europe.

The Aston Online MBA has been placed 17th in the world by the latest and largest-ever QS Distance Online MBA Rankings.

QS Quacquarelli Symonds, higher and business education analysts, have said this year’s edition of their Distance Online MBA Rankings are their most comprehensive yet, with 30 online MBAs being ranked.

The aim of the QS Distance Online MBA Rankings is to provide learners with the detailed information necessary to help them make optimal educational and career decisions.

The methodology comprises 18 indicators across six key areas, including the employability of graduates from each programme, as well as student quality, faculty and teaching.

This latest ranking was announced just a few weeks after the publication of CEO Magazine’s 2016 Global MBA Rankings which ranked Aston Business School 10th in the world for the Online MBA, and one of only six UK business schools to be ranked tier one for the full-time MBA.

Jason Evans, course director for the Aston Online MBA, said: “An increasing number of students today are looking for a quality MBA programme that will enable them to balance study with the demands of their career.

“At Aston, we recognise that need and work hard to ensure our online programme offers a quality experience.

“It is fantastic to know that our Online MBA is being recognised in external rankings, and particularly pleasing that Aston scored an impressive 97 per cent in the QS rankings for the quality of our faculty and teaching.”

The new Aston Executive Part-time MBA builds on this online success by offering a flexible programme with options to study on or off campus, supported by online study materials.

It is specifically designed for people who want to combine study with a full-time career and enables students to learn over a longer period of time than the full-time programme.
