The Haas Undergraduate Program ranks #1 in return on investment (ROI), according to an article published in Poets & Quants on Aug. 26. The ranking is based on research by Payscale for its 2014 College ROI Report.
The rankings feature four data points: Graduation percentage, 20-year net ROI, cost, and annual ROI percentage.
Berkeley-Haas took both the #1 and #2 spots in the ranking, based on a 20-year net ROI of $1,105,000 for in-state students and a $1,007,000 ROI for out-of-state students. Berkeley-Haas in-state students enjoyed a 15.8 percent annual ROI, whereas out-of-state students enjoyed a 10.6 percent ROI.
Using data collected directly from employee survey participants, PayScale ranked hundreds of business programs, based off total school cost and alumni earnings, Poets & Quants reported. The data came from 1.4 million surveys from college graduates who only hold a bachelor’s degree.
