Fortune publishes its national rankings of higher education degree programs as part of its Education Hub. Criteria for the Fortune rankings include each program's academic strength of incoming students, retention and graduation rates, student enrollment numbers, and alumni success.

"It is an honor for our online master's degree programs to again be recognized by Fortune magazine," said Dr. David Bixler, dean of the College of Graduate Studies and Research. "These programs are offered through different departments across the university, which illustrates the breadth of excellence in our online graduate education. It also demonstrates the dedication of our faculty and their commitment to the success of our students and alumni."

Fortune magazine launched its Education Hub in 2021 with its first national rankings for online MBA programs, and ASU has made that list every year. This is the second year Fortune has released rankings for online master's degrees in applied psychology and nursing, and ASU's programs have made the rankings both years. This is the first year Fortune has ranked MBA-Healthcare degrees.
