UNC-Chapel Hill’s online MBA program ranks No. 1 on the Princeton Review’s Top 25 list that was disclosed Wednesday.

NCSU came in at No. 20. 

The No. 1 ranking is the second for UNC’s Kenan-Flagler program this year. U.S. News & World Report’s ranking in January featured UNC in the top spot along with Indiana University and Temple University.

Criteria for rankings:

“The Princeton Review developed its survey methodology and criteria for this ranking based on input from editors of its annualBest 296 Business Schools guidebook (which includes b-school rankings in 11 categories), and an advisory board of administrators at several of the nation’s leading b-schools. The criteria focused on five core areas: academics, selectivity, faculty, technical platforms, and career outcomes. Data points were weighted in more than 60 unique fields to determine the final ranking.”
