OBU Nationally Ranked in Business Degree Affordability

College Values Online ranked OBU 27th among the most affordable competitive small colleges in the nation for a business administration degree. The top 50 most affordable schools were selected and ranked based on net price as listed by the National Center for Education Statistics.

Researchers used multiple data sources like College Navigator, Forbes, Kiplinger, US News & World Report and Princeton Review to rank business programs.

Rankings are based on schools that have a bachelor’s degree in business administration, a maximum enrollment of 3,000 or fewer undergraduate students, a maximum admission rate of 60 percent or fewer applicants, and minimum SAT scores of 420 on critical reading and 420 on math.

“Being recognized for high quality and good value is strong affirmation of our mission,” said Dr. David Houghton, dean of the Paul Dickinson College of Business and professor of business. “The combination allows us to attract students to our programs that will go on to achieve great things in the workplace. This type of recognition for affordability should encourage even more students to experience the life-changing education within the College of Business.”

OBU’s Paul Dickinson College of Business awards bachelor’s degrees in management, marketing, accounting, international business, social entrepreneurship, finance and computer science.

Graduate degree programs include a Master of Business Administration in energy management, leadership, international business or project management.
