SR Education Group, a leading education research publisher founded in 2004, recently recognized Baker University School of Professional and Graduate Studies’ sports management, management, and business programs in its 2018 Top Online Colleges for Value and Most Affordable Online Colleges rankings.  

The Top Online Colleges for Value rankings are based on value, taking into account a program’s academic strength in addition to annual tuition rates to determine a school’s value to students. Inclusion on this list reflects high academic standards and a commitment to affordability, two factors important to prospective students. Baker’s Associate of Arts in Business was ranked third, the management concentration within the Master of Liberal Arts ranked sixth, and the new online Master of Science in Sports Management ranked 19th. 

Dr. Emily Ford, interim dean of the School of Professional and Graduate Studies, believes this award for the MSSM program is a well-deserved recognition of the faculty and staff who have worked tirelessly toward providing a program dedicated to student success at an affordable rate. 

“We are especially excited about the recognition for the Master of Science in Sports Management program, as it was designed to meet the needs of coaches, staff, and administrators in athletics at all levels of play who look to further develop their management and leadership skills,” Dr. Ford said. “Multiple courses offered online and on ground coupled with an affordable tuition rate, allow MSSM students to achieve their goals in the classroom and commit to their sports at the level needed to succeed.” 

Baker’s Master of Science in Sports Management program was also named to SR’s Most Affordable Online Colleges list. This designation is given to schools across the nation that strive to provide economical options for students. SR Education Group researched the tuition of every college and university that offers fully online degrees to determine and rank the most affordable choices. The management concentration within the Master of Liberal Arts was also ranked in the top 25.
