Rogers State University’s degrees in both management and business administration have been ranked among the nation’s most affordable online bachelor’s degrees, according to a recent report by an independent consumer group.
GetEducated.com ranked RSU’s bachelor of science in organizational leadership 12th for affordability among the nation’s online management degrees, while the business administration degree was ranked 13th most affordable in the nation for online business degrees.
The report, released this month, noted both RSU online degree programs were about 40 percent less expensive for Oklahoma residents when compared to the national average.
This is not the first time the firm has recognized RSU’s online degrees, as it honored RSU’s applied technology and business information technology bachelor’s degree programs last fall.
The applied technology and business information technology online degrees were honored as “best buys,” ranked 8th and 10th respectively in GetEducated.com’s national survey of online computer science degrees.
