The online Master of Business Administration programs at The University of Texas at Tyler Soules College of Business are ranked 46th nationwide by Fortune Magazine, as noted on the publication’s Best Online MBA Programs in 2023 list. UT Tyler is one of only two UT System academic institutions among the top 50 ranks this year.

UT Tyler Soules College programming rose from last year’s ranking of 56.

“It is an honor to be recognized by such a prestigious publication,” said UT Tyler President Kirk A. Calhoun, MD, FACP.
