Financial Stability of the University
Many public authorities today advise parents and their college age children to look into the financial stability of the college or university they are thinking about attending to understand whether there is a chance the institution may experience a disruptive financial failure.
MCPHS is proud of its financial stability and that the independent rating agency Moody’s has the confidence in the University’s financial profile to give it an Aa2 rating. Organizations with this rating are judged to be of high quality and are subject to very low credit risk.
Moody’s recently found MCPHS to have:
- Strong management credibility
- A sustained track record of financial success
- Exceptional operating performance
- A favorable reputation
- Very low debt
MCPHS offers undergraduate and advanced degree programs across the entire healthcare spectrum. The University’s proximity and ties to world-class academic medical centers and biotech companies in the Longwood Medical Area and throughout New England provide it with unique advantages that few competitor schools can match.
As many other colleges and universities in the U.S. continue to see the impact of declining enrollments, weakening student demand, and increased competition, MCPHS is demonstrating growth and staying power. Moody’s confidence in the University is a testament to the value that an MCPHS education delivers to students. As MCPHS celebrates its Bicentennial, this positive outlook reinforces the fact that the University is particularly well positioned to remain a leader in healthcare education.
