Oct. 10, 2017

Kennesaw, Ga. (10 October 2017) -- Kennesaw State University’s nationally recognized, AACSB-accredited Georgia WebMBA program was ranked as the third most affordable online MBA program in the country in a report published by BestCollegesOnline.org.

The report examined 255 accredited colleges and universities listed by the National Center for Education Statistics College Navigator as offering online MBA programs. In order to be included in the review, each online MBA program must have also earned a ranking from U.S. News and World Report. Of the 255 programs reviewed, Best Colleges Online ranked the top 50 based on raw affordability.

With a total cost of $6,740, the Coles College of Business’s Georgia WebMBA program is the third-most affordable online MBA program in the country. Kennesaw State ranked higher than four other Georgia universities also on the list.

According to Dr. Amy Henley, Executive Director of MBA Programs, Coles College prides itself on offering an affordable, yet academically challenging, online MBA program.

“We intentionally strive to maintain exceptional standards and academic rigor while remaining competitively priced in the online MBA space,” she says. “By offering such a high quality MBA degree at an exceptional price point, we open the door to a graduate business experience for so many who may have feared that goal to be prohibitively expensive.”

She adds that the program’s affordability makes it easier for working professionals to improve their skills and marketability without disrupting their lives or incurring significant student loan debt. That affordability does not come at the expense of the program’s quality.

“Our online students receive the same diploma as our on campus students do, and from a program consistently ranked as one of the top in the nation,” she says.
