November 30, 2015 — Baker College Online/Center for Graduate Studies recently placed among the best in two national rankings for online colleges:
- 3 in the 2016 rankings of the most affordable online colleges for bachelor’s degrees by College Choice.
- 10 in the 2016 list of the top 50 online doctoral degrees in business and management by Top Management Degrees.
“Baker College Online continues to garner national recognition for the great value of its programs,” said Jill Langen, Ph.D., Baker College Online/Center for Graduate Studies president. “These two recent rankings again prove our dedication to providing affordable and quality online programs.”
Most affordable online bachelor’s degrees ranking
Baker College offers online bachelor’s degrees in the areas of business administration, nursing, human services and computer information systems.
In assessing online bachelor’s degrees for affordability, College Choice included all regionally accredited colleges with at least five online bachelor’s degree programs. To determine the true cost of each online program, the rankings also considered actual total cost including fees not directly accounted for in tuition. College Choice compiled its data from websites of the listed universities, reputable publications such as U.S. News & World Report, and from the National Center for Education Statistics.
College Choice is an independent online publication dedicated to helping students find and thrive at the right colleges for them.
Top online doctoral degree ranking
Baker College offers an online doctorate of business administration.
“Our doctoral degree serves the needs of working adults, helping them advance in their careers through quality graduate education,” Langen said. “It is designed to graduate scholar practitioners who will set the standard for best practice and contribute to the solution of critical business and management problems through research, teaching and consulting.”
Top Management Degrees determined its top 50 list of online doctoral degrees in business and management based on the following criteria: accreditation, flexibility, prestige, estimated cost and business management curriculum. Each criterion was given equal weight, and data were collected from diverse sources, including each college program’s website, U.S. News & World Report, The Princeton Review and the National Center for Education Statistics.
Tammie Cagle, Top Management Degrees editor, said, “Business professionals are turning to doctoral programs to gain further expertise to become more effective leaders and gain global credentials for being knowledgeable and skilled business leaders.
“Our rankings are designed to help prospective students make smart choices about where to invest their time and money. We are committed to connecting people to inspiring ideas and high quality educational opportunities, and are confident that students will find both at Baker College Online.”
