Finding the Best Business Support & Assistant Services School for You

Business Support & Assistant Services is one of the most popular majors in the nation, ranking 10th of all the majors we analyze. In 2019-2020, 17,755 degrees and certificates were awarded to students with this major.

When it comes to higher education, there are a lot of options for business students. You can choose a traditional brick and mortar school, or with the growth of online education, you can attend a school half-way across the country without even leaving your house. Also there are many trade schools that offer short-term programs that open up more career options.

Along with in-depth profiles of schools and the programs they offer, Business Degree Central has created the Best Value Business Support & Assistance Schools to help you in your search for the best school for you. Our analysis looked at 484 schools in the United States to see which programs offered the best value experiences for business support students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

When determining this ranking, we place a high emphasis on the school's quality as well as its sticker price. Even though a college may be affordable, it may not offer value. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

Our calculations use out-of-state tuition and fees in our nationwide and regional rankings. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
