Looking For Better Ways To Rank B Schools

I can't help being disappointed by the lack of coverage of distance-education MBA programs in "The Best B-Schools" (Cover Story, Oct. 2). This is one of the fields in which the Internet's forte--the quick exchange of information--can be exploited successfully.

Many small and midsize companies cannot afford to have their managers studying on a campus far away, so distance learning is a valid alternative. For students, though, it is difficult to assess the quality of these programs. I think I am not the only reader who would like to see a report on the quality of the distance-education MBA programs offered.
