I know there is some debate about the merits of online programs, but I believe they can work very well for situations like mine, in which I travel frequently for work and am advancing through a large company. I recently applied to a bunch of programs and was struggling to narrow them down, so I started creating a spreadsheet ranking what was important to me (I'm a statistician and spreadsheets are my calling). Long story short, I ended up creating a website with a custom ranking of online MBA programs that is actually useful, not the random facts U.S. News give you. The biggest difference is that I included an "easiness" ranking that estimates how much time and effort is required to earn your degree. This may seem counter-intuitive, but the easier the program, the more time you have to focus on continuing to excel in your day job, which is the most important criteria for advancement within a company. Also, you might even have time to have fun once in a while :)

So here it is in case anyone else is looking at online MBA programs:
easyonlinemba.com

Please let me know if you have any ideas to add to the rankings. Hopefully this can be a useful resource for any future online MBA students. By the way, I ended up choosing the University of Arizona (Eller) program, so please feel free to ask any questions about that or any of the many other programs I looked into, basically the top 20 on my rankings.

This is a great initiative.

An addition you may consider is allowing students to contribute verified reviews (the way Amazon buyers leave product reviews). Don't how easy that would be but it would be something these would be added insights that users could find interesting.

Thanks for sharing this!
