DUDLEY—PayScale, Inc., the world’s leading provider of on-demand compensation data and software, issued its annual College Salary Report for the 2018-19 academic year, and Nichols College’s rank on the “business/private school” list jumped a spot over the 2017-2018 report. PayScale’s College Salary Report provides estimates of early and mid-career pay for 2,646 associate and bachelor’s degree-granting institutions throughout the U.S.
“At Nichols College, we are dedicated to providing students the best business and leadership education—and the best return on their investment,” said Nichols College President Susan West Engelkemeyer, Ph.D. “This commitment is validated by our students’ employability, income potential, and upward mobility. The latest PayScale Salary Report is further proof of that.”
Nichols ranks high on PayScale’s lists for financially rewarding bachelor’s degrees:
- #11 out of all business schools in the nation;
- #3 out of Massachusetts private business schools; and
- #6 among all Central Massachusetts colleges and universities.
“Our annual report provides data to inform decisions about which school may make the most sense to attend, and even which major to choose based on a variety of factors. Students and parents want to make informed decisions about future career and income opportunities associated with their college education investment,” said PayScale Vice President Lydia Frank. “While earning potential should not be the only consideration, it is an important factor, especially when evaluating the cost of education today.”
