SUMMARY

Choosing to study Office Management and Supervision is a valuable choice and often a necessary first step for students trying to begin a career as a management executive, an office manager, or a regional director. Interestingly, office management and supervision is a very rare major coming in at the 260th most popular area of study. Last year, there were 586 office management and supervision graduates. In-state tuition for office management and supervision at private schools is, on average, 2.5 times more costly than their public fellows.

With only 49 colleges having programs for office management and supervision you may have limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other office management and supervision majors, consider looking at colleges in Puerto Rico which have more students admitted to office management and supervision than any other state. More generally, the best region to study office management and supervision is in the Other U.S. jurisdictions region with Universidad Ana G. Mendez-Cupey Campus, Inter American University of Puerto Rico-Ponce, and University of Puerto Rico-Aguadilla best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the top conference to major in office management and supervision is the Missouri Valley Conference with Loyola University Chicago representing the conference. Based on our comprehensive list on the best colleges, our choice for the best university for office management and supervision is Southern Methodist University.

The objectively best school does not have to be the 'best' school for every student. There can be lots more angels to think about when deciding on college. External stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might modify one's choice of which university to attend. Here at Authority, we weighed the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which office management and supervision college has the best campus, the winner is Southern Methodist University. If, for example, you are very interested in which college is home to the finest campus, we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more to compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life here and, from that list, our pick for the university with the best student life for office management and supervision is Point Loma Nazarene University. Curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about Authority's top selections. Many of our picks just might shock you.

If price is a significant influence in your decision on where to go to university, you might be cautious about Southern Methodist University. Southern Methodist University is the most expensive college for office management and supervision, at least regarding out of state students. We have a list of the most expensive colleges that could put the price tag at Southern Methodist University into perspective. For more context, you could care to know that office management and supervision is the 400th most expensive degree in the US, with an average expense of $5,400. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for office management and supervision nationally is Texas demonstrated by a cost of $50,200 at Southern Methodist University. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region of the U.S. for office management and supervision is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for office management and supervision is the Southeast region which is represented by Clayton State University with a cost of $14,786 and Tennessee State University with a cost of $20,574. More optimistically, the most affordable college for office management and supervision is Inter American University of Puerto Rico-Fajardo. Authority's full list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state learners can expect to pay about $6,200 for a degree in office management and supervision. The cost increases significantly to an average of $13,500 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. On that note, our selection for the university constituting the best value for office management and supervision: Southern Methodist University. Through this link you will find our comprehensive list of the universities we see as being the best value overall. That being said, this idea is predicated on being an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for office management and supervision students vary a lot, but within two-years of completing the major students will typically make in the neighborhood of $30,200. While there can be a lot of variation in pay; top earners can bring in up to $59,300. Even straight out of university, the lowest earning opportunities within the office management and supervision field earn $41,900, which is an alright wage. The top earning grads from office management and supervision have come from Southern Methodist University and if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of office management and supervision is solid, coming within the 59th percentile of all programs. The university with the most composite diversity for office management and supervision is Loyola University Chicago and here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Office Management and Supervision ranks only within the 0th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, ranking in the 75th percentile. Latino students make up the largest proportion at 46% of those majoring in office management and supervision. Additionally, 70% of students seeking an office management and supervision degree are women.

The median rating of office management and supervision professors is 4.3 stars, a score which is 8% above the average across every major; this is a pretty good ranking. If you are searching for the most popular office management and supervision instructor in the country, take a look at Matthew Wenzlau at Mesa Community College. It might surprise you, but the best rated instructors for office management and supervision according to students come from Mesa Community College. As we consider data beyond simply rankings it becomes clear that the college with the overall best professors for office management and supervision is Southern Methodist University. You will find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as many of the top professors in the U.S.

Finally, the most difficult university to get into for office management and supervision is Inter American University of Puerto Rico-Arecibo. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have a detailed list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we do hope you believe that looking at university from context only informed by superlatives might cause problems. We encourage you to read our other pages on different colleges and peruse a few of our background articles on important details to look out for as your school search continues.
