In today’s job market, having at least a bachelor’s degree is a must. However, not all degrees are created equal because not all universities are created equal. These are, based on a ratio of the average graduate’s total debt to average graduate return on investment (ROI) – among other factors – the universities that give you the most for your money.
1) Princeton University
You might be surprised to see an Ivy League school at the top of the list, and understandably so. However, Princeton, like many Ivy League universities, is keen to acquire the best and brightest regardless of their ability to pay. This means that they ensure that any student who qualifies but can’t afford tuition receives scholarships and grants to allow them to attend without taking out excessive loans. Founded in 1746 as the College of New Jersey, and one of the nine American colleges founded prior to the Revolution, Princeton is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in America. This Ivy League school unsurprisingly gives its grads a high ROI ($690,800 over 20 years) which, combined with a low average graduate debt (just $5,300), makes obtaining a Princeton degree a great investment.
