For the second year in a row the United States Sports Academy’s Master of Sport Science program in sports management has been given a “Best Buy” rating by

The Academy’s program was one of only two sports management master’s programs to earn the designation and it was the only private institution with a sport management degree program on the list.

These rankings were calculated by comparing publicly posted tuition and distance education fees at 56 regionally accredited and regional accreditation candidate universities in the U.S that offer 94 master’s degrees through distance education in the career areas of management and administration.

To appear on GetEducated’s Best Buy list the degrees profiled must objectively cost less than the average cost of all the degrees surveyed in the comprehensive data set. The average cost for this data set was $21,705.

Rankings are based on a Fall 2009 survey. Costs were valid at the time of collection (Fall 2009).
