Temple online MBA kicked out of No. 1 spot in US News rankings; now ‘unranked’ due to data error

Erin Arvedlund:

Temple University’s president and its business school dean issued apologetic statements Thursday, saying the school’s online M.B.A. program lost its category’s top spot in U.S. News & World Report’s closely watched 2018 rankings due to a data error.

U.S. News on Wednesday revised its rankings of the 2018 Best Online M.B.A. Programs after about two weeks, saying Temple’s Fox Online M.B.A. had been removed as the nation’s No. 1-ranked online program due to “unintentionally misreported data,” dean Moshe Porat said in a statement on the university’s website.
