Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) April 25, 2010
Franklin University is pleased to announce it has for the second consecutive term been ranked as a Best Value in Regionally Accredited Online MBAs by GetEducated.com as part of its 2010 business school rankings.
The online university cost rankings are based on a comprehensive, independent survey of 90 regionally accredited business schools that offer 250 different MBA degrees via distance education.
Franklin University was recognized for its affordability for online students nationwide by ranking 34th for its online MBA. The total cost of the Franklin MBA is about $20,000, compared to the average cost of $22,924 for a regionally accredited online master’s in business.
“Distance learning has made higher education more accessible nationwide but cost remains a huge inhibiting factor,” said Vicky Phillips, GetEducated.com’s founder. “Franklin University offers online students nationwide a chance at a high-quality master’s degree through distance learning at less than the cost of the national average. That’s an amazing value proposition.”
Learners nationwide can enroll at Franklin University online and enjoy one low distance-learning tuition rate, yet sacrifice nothing in terms of quality. In return, they gain access to a university that carries regional accreditation, a status considered by many to be the hallmark for degree-granting universities.
