JBU’s MBA Program Ranked One of the Best Values in America
Tuesday, September 6, 2016
You might think that the cost of a master's degree from a private Christian college is out of your reach, but the Graduate School at John Brown University is one of the most affordable options in the region. JBU’s MBA program has been ranked #16 on the Most Affordable Online International MBA Programs list by Best Value MBA and #13 on the Best Value Online Colleges for MBA Programs list by OnlineU.
Best Value MBA ranked the affordability of regionally accredited universities. They gathered a pool of over 500 online MBA programs listed by College Navigator, a database of the National Center for Education Statistics, and selected the 20 least expensive online MBA programs offering a special focus on international business. They note that JBU's MBA in International Business "provides opportunities for students to experience different business cultures firsthand by organizing trips to countries like China, Brazil, and Guatemala."
OnlineU looked at universities from all over America and included schools that offered at least one fully online degree. Their ranking took academic strength, accreditation, and tuition rates into consideration. They collected tuition data and calculated academic strength scores using standardized average SAT and ACT exam scores, then used an internal algorithm to determine overall value rankings.
