This first-of-its-kind study analyzes the long-term return on investment of 4,500 colleges and universities in the U.S., based on the value of graduates’ future earnings up to 40 years after the completion of their degree. According to the report, Quinnipiac ranked in the top 3% of U.S. colleges and universities (#152) for long-term return on investment at the 40-year mark, providing graduates with strong earnings potential for decades after they collect their diploma.
The same report also ranked Quinnipiac in the top 100 (#98) for its graduates’ median 10-year earnings at $63,300 a year.
“This independent study validates that Quinnipiac is among the best when it comes to delivering long-term value to its graduates,” said Eric Sykes, vice president of enrollment management at Quinnipiac. “Students and families are always interested in discussing the return they’ll see on their pursuit of higher education. Our mission includes helping students become life-long learners who are well-prepared to excel in the workforce of tomorrow and it’s wonderful to receive independent recognition for the earnings power of a Quinnipiac degree.”
The Georgetown study comes on the heels of a 2019 study by career site Zippia that named Quinnipiac the top university in the nation for employment after enrollment. The study analyzes the U.S. Department of Education College Scorecard data and focuses on the highest listed job placement figures after graduation.
