Milwaukee School of Engineering was named one of America’s Top Colleges by Forbes on its sixth annual list. MSOE has been included on the list every year since Forbes began ranking colleges and universities in 2008.
To compile the list, Forbes reviewed postsecondary institutions in the U.S. in five general categories: post graduate success, student satisfaction, debt, four-year graduation rate, and competitive awards. Forbes partnered with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity in determining their list of the 650 schools that distinguish themselves from competitors by analyzing what students are getting out of their college education. There are more than 2,500 colleges and universities in the United States.
