Highest Mid-Career Paying Colleges Ranked

According to salary data site PayScale’s list on Huffington Post, the colleges with the highest mid-career salaries for Bachelor’s Degree Graduates, Princeton is your best bet for future financial success. The New Jersey university is the only school on the list with a mid-career salary of more than $125,000. This may seem impressive but, before the recession, five schools (MIT, Dartmouth, Yale, Stanford and, of course, Princeton) all had mid-career salaries firmly in the six figures. Considering the salary range vs. the cost of college, it makes you wonder if it is all worth it.

PayScale’s study, which surveyed graduates from more than 1,003 schools, also reveals that the recession continues to have an impact on post-college pay. The average salary of the top 10 school is $116,900, down 2.7% from 2010 and 6.5% from 2008.

Graduates who got an advanced degree beyond a bachelors were not included in PayScale’s survey. As mentioned in the comments on the original post, most of these colleges are on the East coast, so we are wondering about the data.  I can attest for myself with an MBA, my mid-career salary was much higher and I attended Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.

Here’s the list:

  1. Princeton University $130,000
  2. California Institute of Technology (Caltech) $123,000
  3. Harvey Mudd College $121,000
  4. Harvard University $116,000
  5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) $115,000
  6. Duke University $113,000
  7. Dartmouth College $114,000
  8. Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) $113,000
  9. Lehigh University $112,000
  10. Stanford University $112,000
  11. Colgate University $112,000
  12. State University of New York (SUNY) Maritime College $109,000
  13. Bucknell University $108,000
