EUGENE, Ore., Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has recently released its 2016 ranking for the Most Affordable Online MBA Programs.
As the demand for a more educated business workforce grows, so too does the amount of universities and colleges that are bringing graduate business degrees online. College Choice has taken the time and done the research to ensure that working professionals who are looking for an affordable online MBA program find the best school for them from this new ranking.
"Committing to formal study in management, leadership, or entrepreneurship are sure-fire ways to invest in your business career, but not all aspiring leaders in commerce can relocate to attend school, which means online education is practical and necessary for career advancement," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said at the release of the ranking.
The College Choice 2016 ranking of Most Affordable Online MBA Programs takes into account a school's online portal and support services, tuition rate, financial aid services, time to completion of the degree and more. Special accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs and the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education is also taken into account. This information was gathered using a combination of a school's website and independent ranking and statistics website such as U.S. News and World Report to create an objective view of each program.
