Manhattan College Ranks Fifth For Earnings Performance of its Graduates in Washington Monthly’s College Rankings

The College is also ranked in the top 30 among all Master’s Colleges and Universities in the country.

Manhattan College ranks as the fifth best college in the nation among all Master’s Colleges and Universities for the earnings performance of its graduates, according to the 2023  Washington Monthly’s College Guide and Rankings. The College improved on its strong 2022 rankings, jumping from 42nd to 29th in the publication’s Best Master’s Colleges and Universities, largely based on its contribution to the public good in social mobility and the previously mentioned earning performance of its alumni. campus-768.jpg

Washington Monthly also recognized Manhattan as the 40th ranked Best Bang for the Buck in the Northeast. The College saw a significant jump from 2021, when it was ranked 120th in that category. This ranking is based on a number of factors, including the College’s affordability, graduation rate and alumni earnings.

Since 2005, Washington Monthly, a bimonthly political magazine and website, has ranked schools based on their contribution to the public good in social mobility, research and providing opportunity for public service. All three of these measures are weighed equally, meaning that a college must excel in all of these areas, rather than just excelling in one. The Best Bang for the Buck colleges are rated based on helping non-wealthy students obtain marketable degrees at affordable prices. In its current issue, the publication writes that their rankings “measure what colleges do for their country, instead of for themselves.”
