Pace University named to Forbes list of
“Colleges That Will Make You Rich”
Ranking maps what campuses add to salary expectations
NEW YORK, NY, September 1, 2010 – Pace University has been ranked by Forbes.com as one of the top 20 “colleges that will make you rich.”
The Forbes survey attempts to measure only what colleges and universities actually add to students’ salary expectations.
According to Forbes, to come up with the ranking their staff looked at factors like the average SAT scores of incoming students and the percentage of a student body that receives financial aid. Based on those background factors they then calculated how much one would expect graduates at each school to earn in their careers–and compared their actual earnings to that.
The average annual salary of Pace alumni 10 to 19 years after graduation is $85,031, according to data Forbes used from Payscale.com.
Other institutions in the top 20 include Dartmouth College, Williams College, Stanford University, the University of Chicago, and the University of California at Berkeley.
The results appear in a Forbes.com web feature in conjunction with Forbes’ education coverage, which also includes “America’s Best Colleges,” available online at www.forbes.com/colleges and in the August 30 issue of Forbes magazine.
