Finding the Best International Business School for You

International Business is the #14 most popular major in the country with 9,824 degrees and certificates awarded in 2019-2020.

It's not easy to decide which business program to enroll in when you have so many options available. 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.

The Best Value International Business Schools ranking is one of many tools that Business Degree Central has developed to help you make your educational decision. Our analysis looked at 430 schools in the United States to see which programs offered the best value experiences for international business students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

This ranking is not just a list of inexpensive schools. We also consider each school's quality, since we believe a low-quality school may not be a 'bargain' at any price. Specifically, our score for quality is discounted by the published tuition and fees charged by the given college. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The more quality your dollar buys, the better the value.

For nationwide and regional rankings, we use out-of-state tuition and fees in our calculations. For statewide rankings, we use average in-state tuition and fees.
