    Hello, I know that I may be asking a lot, but I know that Open University from the U.K. is 100% DL and has triple accreditation. Are there other school that have the same triple accreditation and online that is done in English? I'm currently working on a RA MBA at the moment, but was curious if anyone know of another school or is OU the only one that does this.

    There is most likely at least one DL M.B.A. program that's RA, AACSB, and ACSBP, but the obvious question is, why is that important? AACSB trumps other business school accreditation, so anything else would just be window dressing.

    Is there a list of AACSB schools that are DL? I know if I go to the site I can get them all, but I'm sure they don't all offer 100% online.

    Correct as usual, Steve. And the OP was looking at UK Open University. It has what is commonly known as "triple-crown" business accreditation in the Euro-zone - EQUIS AMBA and AACSB.

    There are only 70 of these "triple-accredited" (EQUIS AMBA & AACSB) business schools in the world. 54 are outside the US and a list by country is here:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_accreditation

    Should be a relative cinch to determine which of the ones you're interested in fit the requirements. Maybe it could be considered an entry-level research project. :smile:

    I was wrong. What a surprise! :smile: They are all outside the US. The few "triple-crown" schools in North America are in either Canada or Mexico. Major reason: AMBA accreditation requirement: schools may only admit MBA students with three years or more of post-graduation work experience. A pretty much unheard-of restriction for US schools, including all the Great Names.

    I've already found that, but I wasn't able to narrow it down my DL. I am an American and know that there are no triple crown universities in the states. It can be anywhere so long as it's 100% online.

    It's not all that labour-intensive. Using the school-links contained in the Wiki list it's two clicks to each school's MBA page. I think this list - less than 1% of the world's ~3,500 business schools - is worth some surf-time. To save your surf-time, I looked up the first dozen of the 26 UK schools. It took less than 10 minutes - Ashridge to Henley. Of those, only two schools offer MBAs by distance: Aston and Bradford. I suggest also that you will find many European programs that offer instruction in English. And you can skip Switzerland. IMD is a very well-regarded (and highly selective) school, but no distance programs.

    BTW- I seem to remember Henley - years ago - offering a 100% distance MBA but I can no longer find it on the school site. Nearest is the "flexible" option, DL and face-to-face workshops etc. in UK.
