Finding the Best Entrepreneurial Studies School for You

In 2018-2019, 10,427 people earned a degree or certificate in entrepreneurial studies, making the major the #13 most popular in the United States.

There are lots of options to pick from today when trying to decide which business program is right for you. You're no longer limited to schools in your local area, either, since online programs are becoming more prevalent. Or you may find the programs at a trade school to be a better alternative for you.

Along with in-depth profiles of schools and the programs they offer, Business Degree Central has created the Best Value Entrepreneurial Studies Schools to help you in your search for the best school for you. Our analysis looked at 408 schools in the United States to see which programs offered the best value experiences for entrepreneurship students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

Our ranking of value is based on the quality of a program as defined in our per sticker price dollar. 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.

In our regional and nationwide rankings, out-of-state tution and fees are used in our calculations. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
