PayScale defines “20-year net ROI” as the “difference between 20-year median pay for a bachelor’s grad and 24-year median pay for a high school grad minus total 4-year cost” — in other words, the difference in pay over 20 years between those attending a college or university, and those who did not go to college.
This is the eighth year PayScale has released college and university alumni salary rankings, and the sixth year Wagner College has appeared in the rankings.
PayScale’s ranking for Wagner College was based on a sample of 124 alumni salaries.
