The Online MBA program at Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business has earned the No. 3 ranking in the Poets & Quants Best Online MBA Programs of 2022—a notable rise from the No. 10 spot last year. 1 Santa Clara also placed at the top of the academic experience and career outcomes categories, with a No. 1 ranking in each.
