Augusta University’s James M. Hull College of Business honored nationally

The Hull Online MBA at Augusta University’s James M. Hull College of Business is ranked No. 1 in the nation for most affordable online MBA by College Consensus. The ranking is based on combined education excellence and affordability.

In giving Augusta University the recognition, College Consensus cites the program offers a wealth of innovative wisdom fused with the best business practices. Augusta’s affordable Master of Business Administration degree is the perfect choice for professionals wanting to make a lasting impression on the business world, according to the ranking site. The online MBA program is accredited by the AACSB International, a distinction earned by less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide.

“We are extremely pleased by this honor since it is not just based on our affordability, but also on the high quality of the program,” said Dr. Richard Franza, dean of Hull College of Business.

“We at AU and Hull take pride in the affordability of all our programs, particularly our online and campus MBA programs, which is consistent with the University System of Georgia’s emphasis on affordability of higher education. However, our low cost is accompanied by high quality, as confirmed by our AACSB International accreditation and the focus on working professionals.”

College Consensus added that Hull’s Online MBA stands as a consortium member of the Georgia WebMBA, which is designed for professionals who want to pursue their degrees without location and time restrictions.

“Our Online MBA provides the ideal combination of affordability, quality and convenience for working professionals, and this is confirmed by this honor bestowed upon us by College Consensus,” added Franza.

By combining the results of all of the most reputable college ranking publishers and thousands of student reviews, College Consensus provides comprehensive rankings of reputation and quality for colleges and universities across the nation.
