The best degree? One that fits you.

skinny_jeans_1     Here's yet another pseudo-story on what degree you should get. Why pseudo? Perhaps because of the ads inserted between paragraphs. Or the idea that popularity equates to suitability. Or the lead: "Forget about skinny jeans. The most popular accessory in school these days is a business degree."
     Let's put aside the idea that a degree is an "accessory." Let's instead discuss skinny jeans: Skinny jeans may be popular, but they're a bad fit for a lot of people. We want our students to get the degree that fits their goals. Maybe that's business, maybe humanities, maybe social sciences or criminal justice.
     We take this so seriously that every degree-seeking student is given an academic consultant who can help a student choose a major, and find the shortest path to a diploma.
     If you are interested in business, WSU Online offers a bachelor’s degree in business in three areas: Accounting, Management and Operations, and Management Information Systems. All our online business courses are designed and taught by faculty in the WSU’s prestigious College of Business, which is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the nation’s premier accrediting agency for degree programs in business administration and accounting.
     If you're looking to make a real investment in your future, check out the online program at Washington State University. WSU has more than a century of experience, and a worldwide reputation of producing top-quality graduates.
     Otherwise, you may end up with something that doesn’t fit.
