Seyhan Nisel

Abstract—The purpose of this study was to introduce an alternative multicriteria decision making methodology for ranking the best online business programs. The Extended VIKOR (Vise Kriterijumska Optimizacija I Kompromisno Resenje) algorithm was used in order to strengthen the ranking methodology created by U.S. News & World Report and also make the sensitivity analysis of the results. The findings demonstrated that VIKOR algorithm is remarkably successful to determine the best programs which have acceptable advantage or stability in the ranking related to different criteria weights.
