Finding the Best Real Estate Bachelor's Degree School for You

Real Estate is the #20 most popular major in the country with 5,700 degrees and certificates awarded in 2018-2019.

With all the business programs available today, it can be tough to choose which one is the best for you. Along with traditional schools that require in-person attendence, you can attend one of many reputable online schools. Some programs even offer a hybrid experience. Alternatively, you may choose a trade school that prepares you to enter the workforce with knowledge in a specific field.

The Best Value Real Estate Bachelor's Degree Schools ranking is one of many tools that Business Degree Central has developed to help you make your educational decision. Our analysis looked at 46 schools in the United States to see which bachelor's degree programs offered the best value experiences for real estate 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. 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.

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