Murray State’s online business administration program was recently named one of the most affordable in the country by Great Business Schools, an online resource for prospective business students.

The program was ranked sixth in affordability in the nation.

The online Bachelor of Science program allows students to earn degrees in business administration, computer information systems and logistics and supply chain management through the Arthur J. Bauernfeind College of Business. Graduates can continue to work in a wide range of fields, such as management, programming and supply coordination, through hands-on experiences accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

The Great Business Schools ranking reflected the quality of the program.

“Murray State University is all about creating opportunities,” the ranking read. “Faculty members often have real-world backgrounds in the subjects they teach, so they’re in the perfect position for giving advice. Students have the opportunity to help with research, pursue personalized learning and find real career results. At Murray State, students can get the most for their money.”

Tim Todd, dean of the college of business, said the program’s proof of success was even more important than this recognition.

“We’re grateful for the nod from Great Business Schools, but the greatest indicator of the college of business’ efficiency is the success stories we hear from our graduates,” Todd said. “Racers make a name for themselves in the business community. There’s no doubt about that. We pride ourselves on offering a valuable education that prepares students for successful careers.”
