MSOE has been ranked among the “Best Bang for the Buck Midwest Colleges” in the 2016 Washington Monthly College Rankings.

According to Washington Monthly, “We’ve ranked America’s colleges and universities based on their ‘Bang for the Buck’—that is, the extent to which they charge students who aren’t rich a reasonable price for quality education that will advance them in their careers.”

In compiling this ranking, Washington Monthly analyzed the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard. Part of this data set shows how much students earn ten years after enrolling at a given college and whether they’re paying down loan principal. It also considers the percent of first-generation students enrolled at each college.
