AffordableCollegesOnline.org (ACO), a leader in higher education information, resources and rankings has recognized Peru State College as the 43rd best online Business Management Program in the nation.
“We wanted to honor the colleges and universities setting the bar for online learning,” said Dan Schuessler, CEO and Founder of AffordableCollegesOnline.org.
“These schools are going above and beyond the industry standard to help make online education programs an excellent option and more affordable.”
Only public, not-for-profit institutions were eligible for the ranking. The primary data points used to identify the Best Online Colleges of 2017 include the following regional accreditation; in-state tuition and fees; percent of full-time undergraduate students receiving institutional financial aid; number of online programs offered; and student-to-teacher ratio.
AffordableCollegesOnline.org has distinguished its ranking scale by using a Peer-Based Value metric, or PBV. A “bang for your buck” metrics, the PBV compares the cost of a program to the cost of other programs with the same (or a similar) qualitative score. It also compares the qualitative score of the program to the score of other programs with the same (or a similar cost).
AffordableCollegesOnline.org (http://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/) began in 2011 to provide quality data and information about pursuing an affordable higher education.
Peru State was the only school in Nebraska recognized.
