JWMI Ranked #7 Online MBA Program by The Princeton Review

JWMI recognized in the top 10 best online MBA programs for the second year in a row

Washington, D.C., January 31, 2023 – The Jack Welch Management Institute at Strayer University (JWMI) has been recognized by The Princeton Review’s list of top 50 online MBA programs for the seventh year, moving up three spots to #7 for 2023. This is JWMI’s highest ranking on the list, having improved in ranking for seven consecutive years. The list is developed using various data points about the schools and survey responses from the schools’ administrators and students enrolled in online MBA programs.

“It is an honor to be ranked a top online MBA program by the Princeton Review,” said Mary Carr, Senior Vice Provost and Dean of JWMI. “Our program provides a practical, applicable education to working professionals. Students learn from some of today’s most influential executives and exit with confidence and skills to succeed in business. JWMI’s placement in this year’s rankings reflects our ability to transform students into leaders.”

“The students, faculty, and alumni of JWMI’s MBA program excel at creating powerful outcomes for each other and businesses,” said Andréa Backman, President, Strayer University. “The program’s continued improvement in the Princeton Review rankings underscores our ongoing commitment to help prepare our graduates for success.”

The Princeton Review selected the top 50 online MBA programs and tallied its ranking list based on 2021-22 data that the company collected on 154 business schools offering online MBAs. The company also factored in data from its 2021–2022 survey of 6,900 students enrolled in the schools’ online MBA programs. More than 60 data points were weighed to determine the list and rankings.

The Princeton Review’s project, Best Business Schools of 2023, offers in-depth profiles of the top online MBA programs, including reviews from currently enrolled students. In JWMI’s profile, students note the Institute’s affordability, quality and convenience alongside faculty engagement and expertise. According to learners at JWMI, the MBA program allows students to take “challenging yet engaging courses while still being flexible and adaptive.” JWMI students describe their classmates as “passionate and diverse, from all parts of the world and industries” and note that professors are “highly engaged” and “really care about the students.”

Since becoming part of Strayer University in 2011, JWMI has grown rapidly and graduated more than 3,500 students. Founded by the renowned CEO and business icon, the late Jack Welch, JWMI was designed to provide students with opportunities to learn from business leaders and pursue their career objectives. Jack Welch’s influence spans the curriculum, the faculty, the students, and the administration. JWMI currently enrolls a diverse population, representing 42 countries.
