MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Institute of Technology is among the nation’s best universities for return on investment 20 years after graduation, according to the 2017 PayScale College ROI Report released recently.
With a 20-year net ROI for graduates of nearly $500,000, Florida Tech was in the top 8 percent of the more than 1,420 colleges and universities ranked in the annual report from PayScale, a respected provider of cloud compensation software.
“With myriad colleges to choose from, we believe students need to understand the relative ROI for various schools to ensure they are best positioned for long-term success upon graduation,” Lydia Frank, PayScale’s vice president of content marketing, said in the release announcing the findings.
Frank continued, “We’ve designed the College ROI Report to provide real-world insight into how college choice – right down to the selection of a major – can impact future earning or career advancement potential.”
Florida Tech fares well in that area, too, posting a $700,000 20-year ROI for students who enter technology careers after graduation, according to PayScale.
As in previous surveys, Florida Tech was among the best ROI schools in the state of Florida and among more than 900 private schools included in the survey, where it ranked in the top 6 percent.
