    What a load of crap…Phoenix #1, Thunderbird 10. Pull your head out.

    Unfortunately, there is no official ranking of online MBA programs. This list of top ten programs above is based on the Financial Times ranking, which is primarily based on the number of students enrolled in the online MBA program. Of course, you could argue that the only reason Phoenix has the most number of students is that their marketing efforts are superior to everyone else’s, but if the quality of their education were indeed poor, I doubt that they would end up being as popular as they are now among MBA students.
