EUGENE, Ore., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2017 ranking for the Best Online Business Schools in Texas. http://www.collegechoice.net/rankings/best-online-business-schools-in-texas/
On a number of counts, Texas shows signs of great economic health: Gross State Product is growing, population is increasing, and unemployment is falling. Studying business in the Lone Star State would make sense for someone trying to share in the state's prosperity, and for prospective students in need of flexibility, online business school might be the way to go.
"Texas shares with California the honor of being the state with the most Fortune 500 companies based in the state, and it is home to a wide variety of industries, including computers and electronics, energy production, agriculture, and biomedical technologies," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice said of the ranking. "So if you're a home-grown Texan interested in business and not interested in leaving your great state, you've got lots of reasons to stay. Of course, full-time residential college isn't always possible for everyone, so online business schools present a great opportunity."
College Choice created the 2017 ranking for Best Online Business Schools in Texas based on a program's reputation alongside its average return on investment. The sources for this information come from a variety of publicly accessible records, including a nationwide survey published by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, U.S. News & World Report, the National Center for Education Statistics, and PayScale.com.
