The University of Florida ranks No. 2 nationally among public universities and No. 4 among publics and privates for the economic return students get from attending college and leading students to greater financial security, according to a new analysis highlighted by Forbes magazine.
The analysis shows that UF came in ahead of schools such as MIT, the California Institute of Technology and the University of Michigan. Princeton University and Stanford University, both private institutions, took the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively. To arrive at their rankings, Degree Choices looked at more than 2,000 schools using the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard and the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System.
“This is excellent news and frankly not surprising,” said Mori Hosseini, chair of UF’s Board of Trustees. “It’s well known that UF students get an incredible return on their investment, go on to build highly successful careers and become major contributors to the state’s economy.”Learn more about UF 2nd Among Public Universities for Students’ Economic Return
