Report Card: How Alums Grade Their B-School Experience

Do you believe your business degree was worth its cost in tuition?

It’s one of the most pressing issues currently in higher education. Costs of higher education continue to skyrocket while living wages are not keeping up. Graduates are leaving school under the pressure of a mountain of debt. So which schools are best at providing a business degree that is worth its cost in tuition according to recent alums? The College of New Jersey tops the list this year with an average score of 9.59. The score is significantly lower than last year’s winner — Brigham Young University’s Marriott School of Business, which had a score of 9.78. In total, four schools had higher marks last year than The College of New Jersey’s top mark this year.

Across all schools, the average was 8.33, which is significantly lower than the 8.67 average two years ago and last year’s 8.52 average. It seems over the past three years, which includes survey data from graduates in 2015, 2016, and 2017, that graduates are increasingly feeling like the business degree has not been worth its cost in tuition.
