BUSINESS DEGREES

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES

College students studying business are all over the country. A normal subject grants 6,156 annual four-year degrees; 25,818 students were granted a bachelor's degree in business last spring, making it the 23rd most popular subject around the nation. Indiana University-Bloomington​ gave out 2,026 of those degrees (#1 in the nation), and colleges in Indiana accounted for more degrees than any US State (3,738).

Finding the right college is likely hard, because 421 colleges around the nation grant a college degree in business. There are 2.2 colleges offering undergraduate degrees in business for every college offering the average degree, making it the 52nd most universally offered degree in the country.

GRADUATE DEGREES

While 73% of last year's degrees in business were bachelor's degrees; 27% were postgrad degrees. Business is the 22nd most popular postgrad degree in the nation, with 9,744 degrees conferred. To put that in context, graduate degrees in business are 3.5 times more popular among master's & doctor's students than the average subject.

In Total, 35,562 students received a bachelor's or higher in business last May.

ONLINE BUSINESS DEGREES

6,360 of those 35,562 students (17.9%) completed their degrees remotely - 4,589 undergraduate students and 1,771 postgraduate students. As you've probably noticed by now, business is a hugely popular online undergraduate field. It's currently the 8th most popular remote subject with 9.5 times the US average of 481 undergrads per course of study. For postgrad students, it ranks 23rd, and is 187.5% above the national average (616).

Strayer University-Global Region​ granted the most online undergraduate degrees in business in the United States (380).

Further, New York graduates more business online students than any other state (564 undergrad degrees awarded last year). New York alone accounts for 12% of the country's remote students.

17.8% of all four-year degrees in business are completed comprehensively remote, (18.2% for grad degrees). 72.68% of Strayer University-Global Region's​ last undergraduate class studied business fully remote, higher than any other college in the United States. 380 students in their 523 student class were awarded an online undergraduate degree in business. They offer 100% of their courses of study online, and had 7,652 enrolled online undergraduate students last fall. That's 100% of the student body.

126 colleges in the United States of America have undergraduate degrees totally online, making it the 52nd most commonly available remote subject in the country. Three out of every ten schools that have the degree even have an exclusively remote option, and there are 1.4 private colleges granting undergrad degrees in business for every public institution. Texas has more online programs than any state, with 12 institutions based there.

If you desire to study business and stay motivated on your own of an completely online learning environment, we suggest that you consider applying to the University of Missouri-Columbia, as it has the 12th best business program in the nation. They also have an additional 57 degrees remotely, so their systems are likely reliable. Furthermore, there are 835 remote undergraduate students enrolled, which is 4% of their entire student body.
