Wednesday, April 5, 2017 11:00 AM
Once again, the Carl H. Lindner College of Business earned a prominent place on CEO Magazine's list of the top business schools from around the world.

CEO Magazine released its 2017 Global MBA Rankings list on Wednesday, April 5, profiling 290 MBA programs across North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). Among North American business schools, the Lindner online MBA earned an overall ranking of No. 25, positioning it as one of the top online MBA programs on the continent.

As one of the leading monthly global business and lifestyle magazines for CEOs and executives, CEO Magazine has been showcasing top business schools since 2008. The publication launched its annual Global MBA Rankings in 2012, ranking programs on a variety of factors including learning environments, class sizes, tuition fees, faculty, delivery methods, international diversity and gender make-up.

According to CEO Magazine, its global rankings list aims to cut through the noise and provide students with a performance benchmark for a multitude of schools. “We look beyond the marketing brochures and ad campaigns and examine the nuts and bolts of an MBA,” as stated in this year’s Global MBA Rankings feature.

The Lindner MBA is no stranger to national acclaim. In March 2017, Lindner’s part-time MBA program climbed 16 spots in the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings (to No. 66 overall and No. 40 among public institutions), earning it the highest rankings jump of any part-time MBA program in the United States over the past four years. The Lindner full-time MBA program was ranked No. 79 overall (No. 45 among public institutions) and was once again the only Cincinnati area school to earn a spot on the U.S. News & World Report full-time rankings chart. Additionally, Bloomberg Businessweek recently ranked Lindner’s full-time MBA among the top 50 public programs in the nation, and declared the Lindner MBA the No. 1 best value MBA program in the United States.
