SUMMARY

Choosing to study Business Statistics is a valuable choice and frequently a critical first step for undergrads planning to pursue a career as a finance analyst, a data analyst, or a pricing analyst. Interestingly, business statistics is a ​unique degree coming in at the 261st most popular degree. Last year alone, there were 581 business statistics graduates. In-state tuition for business statistics at private universities is, on average, 4.3 times more expensive than their public counterparts.

With only 35 institutions having programs for business statistics there could be limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other business statistics undergrads, look at schools in New York which have more students admitted to business statistics than any other state. Zooming out, the best region to pursue business statistics is in the Mid East region with CUNY Bernard M Baruch College, New York University, and Drexel University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the best conference to study business statistics is the Southeastern Conference with The University of Tennessee-Knoxville representing the conference. From our list of the best colleges, our choice for the best college for business statistics is New York University.

The overall 'best' school is not necessarily the 'best' school for every student. There can be a bunch more perspectives to consider when deciding on ​university. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might impact your decision of which university to attend. At Authority, we have evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which business statistics university boasts the best campus, the answer is New York University. If, for example, you are very interested in which university is home to the top campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more in order to evaluate each major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life and from that list, our selection of the school with the best student life for business statistics is University of Miami. Curious why? Continue scrolling to learn more about Authority's top selections. Some of our conclusions just might shock you.

If cost is a major factor in your choice of where you attend university, you might be cautious about Drexel University. Drexel University is the most expensive college for business statistics, at least for out of state enrollment. We do have a page for the most expensive universities that might put the expense of Drexel University into perspective. You may also be interested to know that business statistics is the 90th most expensive major in the United States, with an average expense of $40,400. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for business statistics in the nation is Colorado demonstrated by a cost of $51,336 at the main school in the state University of Denver. To zoom out even further, the most costly region for business statistics is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for business statistics is the Great Lakes region which is represented by Ferris State University with a cost of $12,376 and Cleveland State University with a cost of $15,290. On the bright side, the most affordable university for business statistics is Ferris State University. Authority.org's entire list of the most affordable colleges can be found here.

In-state attendees can expect to pay about $10,900 for a degree in business statistics. That price grows substantially to a median of $18,600 for the out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the university representing the best value for business statistics: University of Miami. Here you will see our comprehensive list of the colleges we believe to be the best value overall. Bear in mind, this discussion is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for business statistics students can cover a wide range, but within two years completing the major graduates will typically make around $55,900. While there is a lot of variation in earnings; top positions can bring in up to $99,700. Right out of school, the minimum earning jobs within the business statistics space make $30,900, which isn't that bad. The highest earning grads for business statistics studied at Drexel University and if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The overall diversity of business statistics ranks on the higher end, falling in the 74th percentile of majors nationally. The college with the highest composite diversity for business statistics is New York University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Business Statistics only ranks in the 10th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, in the 66th percentile. White collegians compose the largest share, 49%, of scholars majoring in business statistics. Additionally, 58% of scholars pursuing a business statistics degree are men.

The median rating of business statistics professors is 3.5 stars, a rating that is 12% below the median for all majors; which is a subpar ranking. If you want the most popular business statistics professor in the country, consider looking up Steven Sommer at Pepperdine University. It may be a shock, but the best rated business statistics instructors according to students are found at Pepperdine University. If we incorporate information beyond just rankings it becomes clear that the college with the best instructors for business statistics is New York University. You can find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the top instructors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest college to get into for business statistics is New York University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have a general page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you believe that approaching the education process with a lens primarily shaped by superlatives can create problems. We at Authority hope you look at some of our other pages on different colleges and explore some of Authority's insightful background 'blog posts' on important things to look for as you continue your university search.
