Princeton Review cites Miami among nation's best for ROI/career prep

Princeton Review cover

Miami is on the list of best 200 colleges.

Miami University is among the nation's best for academics, affordability/financial aid, and "for getting their graduates out the door to satisfying and rewarding careers," according to The Princeton Review.

Miami is on the list of Princeton Review’s 2017 edition of Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for Your Tuition Buck, now available.

Miami students “applaud the commitment of the school in providing tools to help them to find jobs after college, including ‘career fairs, relationships with recruiters, supporting alumni, mock interview/résumé workshops/career services, and teaching material that is applicable to future endeavors,’” according to editors.

The Princeton Review selected the 200 schools based on a comprehensive analysis of more than 650 colleges that weighted 40+ data points to tally ROI (return on investment) ratings for the schools.

Data analyzed covered academics, cost, financial aid, graduation rates, student debt and more. The company collected that data from its 2015-2016 surveys of administrators and students at the schools.

It also factored in data from PayScale from its online compensation survey on starting and midcareer salaries of alumni of the schools. 

The Colleges That Pay You Back project is an expansion of The Princeton Review's annual Best Value Colleges book and list, first published in 2004. 

Miami is among colleges featured in Princeton Review’s 2017 edition of its college guide, The Best 381 Colleges, published in August 2016. Miami also appears on the following Princeton Review lists: Best Midwestern and Green Colleges.
