A new study out from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce has some fascinating findings.
The report “ranks 4,500 colleges and universities by return on investment” and includes an online database allowing the public to look up data on their state’s universities.
I’ve also embedded the full report below. The (somewhat clunky) database is here.
“Community colleges and many certificate programs have the highest returns in the short term, 10 years after enrollment, though returns from bachelor’s degrees eventually overtake those of most two-year credentials,” reads one of the top-level, national conclusions from the study.
