Bentley University Ranked Second in Country for Best Value by Money

TOPICS

News

In a new best colleges ranking from Money, Bentley was ranked number two in the nation among colleges that add the most value.

Money’s list is comprised of colleges that help students perform better than expected when considering their academic and economic backgrounds (measured with what they call a comparative-value grade).

Unlike schools that market alumni success and high graduation rates, universities with high comparative-value grades boast high percentages of student loan repayment in addition to earnings and graduation rates. Money’s ranking eliminates schools with graduation rates below 50 percent and adjusts the alumni earnings numbers to coordinate with the majors at each school.

Money ranks colleges on the following criteria:

  • Comparative-value grades for graduation rates
  • Earnings
  • Student loan repayment
