For the second year in a row, Money named Merrimack among the colleges and universities that help ensure economic success for graduates.
Money looked at 736 U.S. schools in compiling its rankings.
“This recognizes the hard work that our faculty and staff, particularly the O’Brien Center for Student Success, do to prepare Merrimack students for a lifetime of achievement,” said President Christopher E. Hopey. “We hear over and over again from employers that our graduates are well prepared for their chosen fields, and the Money ranking shows that is a consistent benefit of a Merrimack education.”
Merrimack’s added value is its ability to help students succeed professionally when they graduate. “What’s impressive is when a college can help students do far better than you’d expect based on their academic and economic backgrounds and the mix of majors at their schools,” the magazine said.
The value-added ranking looks at graduation rates, earnings, and student loan repayments.
