“I am ecstatic about TMU’s continual recognition by outside assessors of both the quality and affordability of our online programs,” said Brad Reynolds, vice president for academic services. Of all majors, business majors, should know the importance of both a quality education and the importance of affordability.  The return on investment is incredible.”

To be considered for the subject rankings, the SR Education chose schools regionally accredited and that offer at least one fully online degree in a given subject for the degree level of the list. Program data included available degrees, tuition rates, and details about program coursework collected from official school websites, reflecting data for the 2018-2019 school year.

Each of these concentrations prepares students for careers in the respective concentration as they complete their Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA). The BSBA program is designed for students who wish to prepare themselves for a career in a business profession or in an area where success demands a working knowledge of business principles and practices. Courses include: Financial Accounting, International Business, Business Law, and Management Information Systems, to name a few.

It is a privilege for TMU to offer affordable business program options that integrate a Christian worldview.”
