Want to get yourself into an online business school but don't have time to take the GMAT's? No worries. There is a school close to home that ranks high on the nation wide list of schools that say you don't need a GMAT to get into their programs.

What is a GMAT? They are the Graduate Management Admission Tests which "assess certain analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for use in admission to a graduate management program."

MBA Central announced this week that there are 550 schools that they reviewed and here are the top 50 that have either said you don't need the GMAT or they have waivers in place. According to their press release, this is how MBA Central compiled the list of schools:

We gathered data from each MBA website, the leading online MBA ranking systems, accrediting agencies, and the National Center for Education Statistics. Each school was then ranked upon their affordability, quality of classes, and support services for online students.

The Top Three schools, according to this study are University of Nebraska-Lincoln's College of Business in Lincoln, Nebraska in first place. Coming in second is Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide's College of Business in Daytona Beach, Florida, and then in third place is the University of Massachusetts Lowell's Robert J. Manning School of Business in Lowell, Massachusetts.
