Chart of top 10 institutions long-term net present value. MCPHS ranks third.

Recent Georgetown University Study Ranks MCPHS #3 in the Country for the Economic Value That We Provide to our Students

  • In a recent study from Georgetown University’s Center for Education and the Workforce, the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences ranks #3 in the U.S. for the economic value it provides for its students.

    The study reports that the net economic value that students realize after 30 years is $1.8 million, and after 40 years is $2.4 million. The dollar values were derived by a calculation of the net present value, a totaling of costs and future earnings. Researchers used recently released federal data to calculate the return on investment of more than 4,500 colleges and universities across the country.

    The report was published in a number of national, region, and local publications including the Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, and The Washington Post.

    As the most comprehensive healthcare university in the country, our students benefit from an interprofessional environment across twelve schools representing more than 100 health sciences programs. For nearly 200 years, the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences has had a singular focus on training students for high-paying and rewarding careers in healthcare.
