WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Jack Welch Management Institute (JWMI) was named a top online MBA program for 2019 by Poets & Quants, a premier graduate business education website. Among the online MBA subcategories, the school garnered the top rating for “alumni perceptions of the quality of their professors” and second highest rating for MBA experience. JWMI was ranked number one in students’ ability to immediately apply learnings on the job.
“Our goal at JWMI is to prepare our students to solve the real-world business challenges they’ll face on a daily basis,” said Jack Welch, Executive Chairman and Founder of JWMI. “We’re honored to be included in Poets & Quants’ rankings – joining so many other schools we admire and respect – and to know that our students feel that our program is helping them advance and be the best they can be in their careers.”
In addition to ranking JWMI second in online experience, Poets & Quants also ranked the school in the top 10 for career outcomes, which was calculated based on survey responses from alumni on factors related to career outcomes including, but not limited to, their success in reaching their goals, available career readiness tools and changes in salary.
