There are lots of options to pick from today when trying to decide which business program is right for you.

To help you arm yourself with the information you need to make your decision, Business Degree Central has developed this Best Value Entrepreneurial Studies Bachelor's Degree Schools ranking. Our analysis looked at 197 schools in the United States to see which bachelor's degree 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.
