The University of Washington ranks fifth among all public and private universities in the country in a survey that estimates the financial return on degrees.
“While financial return on investment isn’t the only value in a college degree, being fifth in the nation among all public and private universities certainly validates the power of a UW education and the excellence of our graduates,” President Michael K. Young said.
The research was done by PayScale, which surveyed college graduates to estimate the annualized return on investment.
