This is a news release from College Choice

College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2016 rankings for the Most Affordable Business Schools.

Many business professionals are looking for a way to get their college degree without it costing them an arm and a leg. This is especially true for professionals who are looking for an undergraduate business degree. That's why this College Choice 2016 ranking was made specifically to introduce prospective students to the most affordable business schools in the country.

Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, had this to say about the ranking: "According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, people in management occupations (where many business school grads end up) earned an average of $98,560 in 2015. No other occupational group had a higher average compensation level. Job growth is looking healthy as well - business and financial operations occupations are projected to grow 8 percent from 2014 to 2024."

The Most Affordable Business Schools 2016 ranking from College Choice was created by collecting data on individual school programs, academic reputation, student retention, special accreditation by business associations, gainful employment statistics, and tuition. This information was found using program websites from each school and business school accreditation sites such as the ACCSB, the ACBSP, and the IACBE. Other factors were researched using independent statistical sites, such as the National Center for Education Statistics.

The College Choice 2016 ranking for Most Affordable Business Schools is led by The University of Texas at Brownsville. Southern University at New Orleans and Mississippi Valley State University rounded out the top three.
