Dean of Adult and Graduate Studies William Harle said, “The success and national ranking of our online bachelor’s program in business administration can be attributed to our award-winning business faculty and dedicated staff.”

The BestColleges website affirms that “earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration opens the door to an extraordinarily large number of career paths,” and “the best business administration programs are designed to equip students with both a high-level grasp of business concepts as well as the experience and competencies needed to apply them concretely in diverse, real-world industries.”

Bryan’s program does just that. Harle noted, “Our business graduates receive an excellent, Christ-centered business education that prepares them for a lifetime of leadership in their workplace, their church, their home, and their community.

“Educating students to become servants of Christ is the hallmark of our mission at Bryan College, and we have created an undergraduate program in business administration where we recognize that the foundation of all learning begins with the Word of God.”

Bryan earned this honor in competition against several larger and more established programs and placed higher than Belhaven University, which ranked no. 24. More information on the online business administration program can be found on the website.
