Affordable Private Colleges for Business

Many students know they want Business as a major, but they don’t know which aspect of business they really want. Therefore I have compiled a list (stratified by cost) of private colleges that offer ALL of these:

Business Administration/Management





International Business

Data/Business Analytics

Some are offered as majors, others as minors, emphases, or concentrations, but they do offer “something” in all seven subject areas. Virtually all these colleges also require internships and research.

There are 865 private colleges in the U.S., and most of them offer business programs, but I narrowed the list down to make it a more useful tool.

Note: I define “small” as less than 3,500 full time undergraduates.

Note: These figures are based on averages, so some people pay more and some pay less. These are not absolute numbers, nor do they imply the cost for you and your family. They are general guidelines for cost AFTER MERIT (not including loans).

I hope this list is helpful as you search for a private college to attend!
