JWMI joins Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and University of North Carolina in distinguished ranking of top online MBA programs
Washington, D.C. – November 2, 2017 – The Jack Welch Management Institute has been named one of the Top 25 Online MBA Programs for 2018 by the Princeton Review, moving up two spots to number 20. The list is the Princeton Review’s 3rd annual ranking of online MBA programs that is based on both surveys of administrators at the schools and of students enrolled in the schools' online MBA programs. JWMI has placed in the ranking each year the school has applied.
"We are honored to be included among Princeton Review’s list of online MBA programs for the second consecutive year. This ranking, which relies heavily on feedback from our students, proves again what we have always known to be true: We have a powerful, one-of-a-kind program at JWMI, with proven management principles and practices that changes lives," said Jack Welch, founder and Executive Chairman of JWMI.
"We strongly recommend the Jack Welch Management Institute as an outstanding choice for anyone considering an online MBA," said Robert Franek, Princeton Review Senior VP/Publisher. "Its program is exceptionally strong both academically and in the many ways it maximizes technology that enables students to interact with and learn from its superlative faculty and students all over the world."
The Princeton Review chose the schools for the list based on its surveys in 2016-2017 of 75 institutions offering online MBAs and of about 4,300 students enrolled in the online MBA programs. Data points were weighted in more than 60 unique fields to tally the final list. Criteria focused on five areas: academics, selectivity, faculty, technical platforms, and career outcomes.
In six years of operation, JWMI has graduated over 875 working professionals and currently has over 1,725 students enrolled.
Named a Top 15 Global Online MBA Programs for 2017 by CEO magazine, the number one most influential education brand on LinkedIn and one of the top ten business schools to watch in 2016 by Poets and Quants, the Jack Welch Management Institute offers an online MBA program that is specifically designed to help solve today’s leadership crisis in the workforce.
