SMITHFIELD, RI—According to a recent report by Georgetown University's Center on Education and the Workforce, the return on investment for a Bryant education is among the best in the country. The report, “A First Try at ROI: Ranking 4,500 Colleges,” ranks colleges and universities in the U.S., with Bryant among the top 100 (about 2 percent) in the U.S. and No. 1 in Rhode Island.
The Boston Globe and Providence Business News reported on the study’s findings and methodology. According to the Globe, “the report suggests Bryant graduates can expect an economic gain of $1 million after 30 years and $1.4 million after 40 years, placing the Smithfield school in the top 100 in the country. Brown is the only other local school that cracked the top 100.”
"What’s Bryant’s secret?”
“The Bryant experience is uniquely student-centered and focused on optimizing learning,” says Glenn Sulmasy, J.D., LL.M., Provost and Chief Academic Officer. “Our curriculum integrates business with the arts and sciences and our growing programs in the health sciences, so that all students achieve intellectual growth and develop skills that are in high demand in today’s market.”
The Providence Business News story notes, “The report tracks costs, future earnings, and the length of time it would take to invest and earn a certain amount of money over a fixed horizon, and projects it at current day levels, 10, 15, 20, 30 and 40 years out.”
