New Alumni Factor ranking places Miami among highest in the nation and tops in Ohio
Miami University ranks 47 among 104 national universities included in The Alumni Factor, a new college-ranking platform that launched Sept. 10. Miami ranks 26 among public universities.
"With the rising cost of tuition and the nation's alarmingly high student loan debt, students and parents crave quantifiable data that measures the expected return of investment, and the value of an education at one school versus another," said Monica McGurk, executive editor and CEO of The Alumni Factor. Alumni outcomes offer a new way to calculate that return on investment.
The findings are based on four years of data collection, statistical research and an independent review led by a Georgia Tech University statistician. The list of colleges was narrowed to rank the 177 top colleges and universities included in The Alumni Factor report. In-depth profiles of the 177 ranked schools are included in recently published book, The Alumni Factor.
Ohio schools in the overall rankings include Ohio State University at 125; and private schools, Kenyon College (62); Oberlin College (73); Xavier University (90); Ohio Northern University (154); and Case Western Reserve University (158).
