"Online MBA degrees have become one of the most highly customizable programs available today," suggests Tammie Cagle, Editor of MBA Central. Some degrees offer the freedom to work online or on-campus, customizable curriculum, optional international residencies, and even graduation timeline. Students looking for a program with a high return on investment should seriously consider an online MBA with a fast completion time. But prospective students should also be aware that not all fast-paced online MBA programs are equal. By ranking the fastest online MBA programs by quality, support services, and affordability, this list can help students find the programs that will add the most value to them on the quickest timeline.
