Online Business Programs Ranked by Best MBA Faculty

Start your research into the faculty strength of the online MBA programs you’re considering by looking into the number of full-time faculty the program employs. Wilkes University campus has the highest number of full-time faculty of any online MBA program – 274. Simmons University, on the other hand, has only 11 full-time professors.

But the number of full-time professors is not all you should consider. A program without a large full-time faculty may have several part-time professors to help with the teaching load. You should also consider qualifications of the faculty, such as the percentage of professors who have a doctorate degree.
