Top Colleges for Top Salaries
Smart Money published a report on colleges where students earn the most based on following criteria
Recent grads (out of school for an average of three years) and midcareer types (an average of 15 years out). For each group, we divided the median alumnus salary by tuition and fees (assuming they paid full price at then-current rates), averaged the results and, finally, converted that result to a percentage figure.
The outcome: a measure of return on investment that we’ve dubbed the Payback Score. For example, a hypothetical alum who spent $100,000 to attend college and now earns $150,000 a year would have a personal score of 150.
Georgia Tech tops the list of colleges where grads earn a lot of money, followed by University of Florida.
