How we measure the value of a degree

We know that what’s valuable to one person might not be valuable for someone else. So, we take into account the following objective factors to help you decide where to make your educational investment:

  • Ratio of faculty to students at the school
  • School environment
  • Student clubs and organizations
  • Availability of financial aid
  • Return on Investment (ROI) based on projected income
  • Job market and availability for that degree
