Merrimack placed 21st in the nation for “Colleges That Add the Most Value” in Money’s special Best Colleges report.

These “Value All Stars,” in Money’s phrase, “turn out graduates who exceed the averages for their peer group by the widest margin” in post-graduation earnings. 

Christopher E. Hopey, Ph.D., president of Merrimack, said that assessment bears witness to the college’s commitment to professional programs with a strong liberal arts core, supported by an array of services aimed at post-graduation success.

“Through our O’Brien Center for Student Success, with its emphasis on experiential placements and job training, our First Year Experience, the Stevens Service Learning Center and many other academic, student-service and even alumni programs, we focus from day one on students’ career goals,” said Hopey. “Merrimack students are well prepared to thrive in their chosen professions.”

Money looked at 665 U.S. schools, focusing on quality, affordability and career outcomes.
