UNCG is ranked among the 10 best universities in the nation for the value its education offers graduates, according to the nonprofit Educate to Career.

UNCG ranked No. 10 on the Educate to Career College Ranking Index, which “measures the improvement in employability and earnings that a particular college brings to its graduates, relative to students similarly situated at other colleges,” said Educate to Career President Michael R. Havis.

The nonprofit looked at four-year institutions with annual enrollments over 1,000 students. Universities were judged using an array of data, including college affordability, graduation rate, the percentage of students employed in occupations that utilize their field of study, the average salary of recent graduates, and the percentage of students employed a year after their graduation.

UNCG was one of four North Carolina institutions to make the list; all ranked among the top 15 schools chosen. Other ranked schools include UNC Chapel Hill at No. 1, East Carolina University at No. 4 and UNC Charlotte at No. 14.
