Facilitating a one-of-a-kind, team-based Master’s in Business Administration program, seven Georgia universities partner together to create the consortium WebMBA program. This year, the universities who comprise the consortium–Augusta University, Columbus University, Georgia College & State University, Georgia Southern University, Kennesaw State University, University of West Georgia, and Valdosta State University–boasted top rankings while offering their on-campus programs as well as this unique online program. 

The excellence begins with Augusta University, which was named a Best Business School by the Princeton Review. Their MBA program has been dubbed a Best Part-time MBA Program by U.S. News & World Report.

Columbus State University retains its status as a “best college” in several categories published by U.S. News and World Report in its list of 2024 Best Colleges. This includes moving up three points in its Best Regional Universities (South) category. This year’s rankings are the first time Columbus State appeared in U.S. News’ Best Value Schools – Regional Universities (South) category.

Georgia College & State University was recognized by the Princeton Review as one of the "Best Colleges: Region by Region" for the 13th consecutive year. U.S. News and World Report ranked GCSU on its Most Innovative in the South and Top Public Schools (South) lists. 

Georgia Southern University was ranked as a Best Online MBA for Veterans, and moved up a spot in their ranking for the Online MBA Program. The Online MBA (WebMBA) program has ranked in the top 100 for the past five years.

Kennesaw State University’s Coles College MBA program was ranked in The Princeton Review’s 2023 list of the Top 50 Online MBA Programs. Fortune ranked the Online MBA (WebMBA) in its listing of the Best Online MBA Programs of 2023, and CEO Magazine ranked the Online MBA program as a Tier 1 program.

The University of West Georgia was once again recognized as a leader in online MBA education as it maintained momentum in this year’s annual rankings by U.S. News & World Report relevant to its offering of the WebMBA. UWG’s Online MBA (WebMBA) was also ranked a Top Tier program in the Georgia Online MBA Report and a “Top Program” by the Princeton Review.

Valdosta State University earned spots on four U.S. News and World Report 2023 Best Colleges lists, including Top Performers on Social Mobility.
