Nat’l Report Ranks Hofstra High for ROI

Hofstra University is in the top five percent of colleges and universities nationwide for mid-career salary of graduates with a bachelor’s degree, and in the top 16 percent for return on investment, according to the 2015-16 PayScale College Salary Report and the Payscale College ROI Report.

The mid-career salary ranking is an improvement over 2014, when Hofstra ranked in the top six percent nationwide. The rankings are based on self-reported mid-career salary data from 1.4 million college graduates. The return on investment rankings are based on a combination of mid-career salary data and an institution’s cost of attendance.

  • The Frank G. Zarb School of Business was ranked in top four percent of the nation’s Best Schools for Business Majors for graduates with a bachelor’s degree, in the top five percent among Best Schools for Business Careers for graduates with a bachelor’s degree, in the top 21 percent among Best Schools for Marketing Careers for graduates with a bachelor’s degree, and in the top 30 percent on mid-career salary for alumni of advanced degree programs.
