Online Business and Nursing Programs Ranked Among Country's Best Values

Two of Columbus State University degree programs have been ranked among the nation’s top 20 best values in online degrees. Nursing was ranked No. 18, and Business was ranked No. 20.

The rankings were put together by SR Education Group, an education publishing company focused on creating authoritative online education and career-related resources. Columbus State University is now featured on as offering one of the best value online degrees in the nation.

“We are so very proud of our accredited programs in business and nursing,” said CSU President Tim Mescon, noting that both programs – and many others at the university – offer undergraduate and graduate degrees. “Our faculty work hard to develop and deliver best of class affordable and accessible programs and courses.”

OnlineU’s mission is to refocus the higher education conversation around affordability and quality and make access to online college information more transparent, said Kimberly Wetter from SR Education Group

“We completed extensive research into the cost of attending different online colleges and then analyzed the outcome-based statistics to find the best value online colleges,” said said. “With the average price of college skyrocketing forcing many students to rely on student loans to fund their education, we were impressed with Columbus State University and their ability to continue to offer quality degrees at a reasonable price.”
