Forbes names MSOE one of “America’s Top Colleges” for 2016
For the ninth year in a row, Milwaukee School of Engineering has been named one of America’s Top Colleges by Forbes. MSOE has been included on the list every year since Forbes began ranking colleges and universities in 2008.
According to Forbes, “What sets our calculation of the best 660 U.S. colleges and universities apart is our firm belief in ROI. We look at factors that directly concern students (and their families): Are current undergrads satisfied? Is it likely I’ll graduate on time or incur a ton of student debt? Will I get a good job and be a leader in my chosen profession?”
Post-secondary institutions in the U.S. were evaluated in five general categories: post-graduate success, student debt, student satisfaction, four-year graduation rate and academic success. Forbes partnered with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity in determining their list of the 660 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.
