THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State University has been named one of the top universities in the country that offers an online business degree by the SR Education Group.
The online higher education resource evaluated 572 colleges with an accredited online business degree program and ranked them by comparing their cost of attendance and entrance exam scores and published a Top 25, with Nicholls coming in at No. 4.
“The cost of going to college is rising across the nation,” said Dr. Andrew Simoncelli, Nicholls director of distance education. “Many students are unable to pursue a college degree due to these costs. At Nicholls Online, we try to keep our tuition affordable so that people can achieve their dream of going to college without having to incur tons of debt in the process.”
The Nicholls College of Business is AACSB-accredited, a distinction held by less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide.
Nicholls was the top school in Louisiana and ranked ahead of programs such as Sam Houston State University and Southeastern University.
