WSU online graduate business programs advance in Poets & Quants ranking recognition

PULLMAN, Wash. – Poets & Quants ranked online MBA and executive MBA programs from Washington State University’s Carson College of Business as No. 19 in their 2023 rankings of The Best Online MBA Programs, moving up from No. 25 in 2022. 

“We are the first choice for working students seeking an affordable, quality online business education from a Pacific Northwest university, and we are always pleased when our programs are recognized,” said Chip Hunter, Carson College dean. “The leap from 25 to 19 in the rankings demonstrates the strength of our 100% online program delivered to students across the globe. The positive feedback from graduates and their willingness to give back to WSU as mentors, panelists and classroom speakers affirm the unique quality of a WSU online education.”

Poets & Quants is a leading international authority on the quality of business programs, known for its independence and focus on student success. The organization’s rankings for online MBA and executive MBA programs were determined by the quality of WSU online MBA students, alumni assessment of the program experience and career outcomes of the program’s alumni. The alumni survey sought recent graduates’ impressions on a range of topics, as well as whether the program fulfilled their expectations and if they would recommend it to others. 

“The Carson College of Business at Washington State University is celebrating 30 years of offering high quality, affordable online business education emanating from the Pacific Northwest,” said Cheryl Oliver, Carson College associate dean for professional programs. 

“Through our decades of experience, we have remained committed to valuing our stakeholders and to continuous improvement. This would not be possible without our strategic partners, including Global Campus. I am grateful for our faculty, staff and colleagues’ commitment to delivering on our mission to support the academic and career success of our students and graduates. We appreciate the vote of confidence from our outstanding alumni who are consistently willing to publicly recognize the value of their degree through the Poets & Quants survey.”
