Online Business Program Places High in Rankings

January 19, 2018 – Bryan College’s online business program geared toward adult learners has recently received the distinction of placing in two national rankings.

The college has placed #6 in The Best Colleges’ “Top 25 Online Associate in Business Administration Programs for 2018” and #23 in Best College Reviews’ “Top 24 Associate’s Degree Programs in Business Online 2017-2018.” Both of these rankings looked at colleges and universities from all over the country, including Indiana Wesleyan University, Belhaven University, Liberty University, and University of Phoenix (among many others). Rankings were based on factors such as tuition, customization options, and graduation rate.

Bryan’s program boasts 6-week accelerated online classes, a Christian worldview, and competitive tuition rates with financial aid available to those who qualify. Graduates of the program complete all general education requirements for the School of Adult and Graduate Studies, which allows for a seamless transition into the bachelor’s degree program later.

According to, “The skills obtained through an online associate degree in business will prepare you for a career in many different industries. Organizational, interpersonal communication, budgeting, and marketing expertise will make you a competitive candidate for jobs as an administrative or executive assistant within corporations, healthcare organizations, and technology firms.”

Daniel Gates, an assistant business professor at Bryan, remarked, “As a professor at Bryan College it is gratifying to hear that our hard work is recognized. We do our best as instructors to bring in our own academic, real world, and Christian worldview into the classroom; I know it is the unique experiences of our faculty that allow Bryan College to deliver a quality education that focuses on a biblical worldview.”
