MSOE tops the list of the 2016 Best Value Colleges in Wisconsin according to results from a recently released SmartAsset survey.

The survey looked at five factors to determine Wisconsin’s best value colleges and universities: tuition, student living costs, scholarship and grant offerings, retention rate and starting salary. Both private and public colleges were included in the survey.

MSOE graduates have the highest average starting salary in the state at $61,500, with a tuition of $34,740, offset by scholarships and grants averaging just over $20,000. These combined factors put MSOE in the number one spot for best value proposition. Coming in second and third on the list are the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and University of Wisconsin-Madison, respectively. Read more in the Milwaukee Business Journal.
