How would you rate KAPLAN'S online MBA program? KAPLAN is a very popular/famous school, but does it own up to its reputation? I want to do an online mba program soon. Would you recommend KAPLAN online MBA or Cal State Dominguez Hills? Thanks

Hi M555,

What are you looking for in an online MBA???

The "best online MBA" will be the one that offers what you are looking for in terms of cost, majors, rep and student engagement.

There are more than 500 accredited online MBA options all are quite varied in terms of cost, accreditation, majors and regional and name brand recognition as well as student ratings and public perception ratings.

You can see the ratings and reviews for Kaplan University's Online Graduate School of Business and Management here.

Current Rankings =

Affordability = D+ Student Satisfaction = B+ (1 online student review) Public Reputation = D+ (4 public reputation reviews)

You can see rankings and reviews for the Kaplan online MBA here.

You can look at the data and comments/reviews for more insights on this particular online MBA option.

You can compare Kaplan's rartings to the California State University online MBA by following the link.

Current Rankings = 

Affordability = A- Student Satisfaction = A (2 online student reviews) Public Reputation = A (2 public reputation reviews)

These two programs are VERY different on most all dimensions.

What do you like about each of them?

All the best

I would never recommend Kaplan. If offered a full scholarship I still wouldn't go. It's a for profit school which pretty much means the quality of education that is offered is sub par. Don't mean to offend anyone but I would be wary of any for profit institution.
