Harvey Mudd has the highest 30 year average net return on investment of any college in the United States according to payscale. The college is just as unique as this fact indicates, as liberal arts colleges typically do not boast such a high ROI. One of the primary reasons for the high ROI at Harvey Mudd is because while it is a liberal arts college, its primary focus is on engineering, mathematics, and the sciences. The school seeks to train up leaders in these high paying fields by using a comprehensive liberal arts core to instill in students an understanding of how these fields and their role in them have an influence on modern society.
