To help you arm yourself with the information you need to make your decision, Grad Degree Search has developed this Best Value Business & Commerce Doctor's Degree Schools ranking. Our analysis looked at 24 schools in the United States to see which doctor's degree programs offered the best value experiences for general business students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

When determining this ranking, we place a high emphasis on the school's quality as well as its sticker price. Even though a college may be affordable, it may not offer value. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

Our calculations use out-of-state tuition and fees in our nationwide and regional rankings. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
