The report, “First Try at ROI: Ranking 4,500 Colleges,” attempted to answer the persistent question among students: Is college worth the cost?

The research was conducted at Georgetown’s Center on Education and the Workforce as an effort to provide information about factors ranking college according to return on investment, while using new data from the US Department of Education’s College Scorecard, and focuses on the net present value of college.

The research was used to rank more than 4,500 colleges nationwide based on short- and long-term net economic gains. Overall, the report outlined that private nonprofit colleges have the highest long-term value.

Thomas More ranked highest among 28 public and private Kentucky colleges and universities in four benchmarks – at 15, 20, 30, and 40 years after enrollment.
