Chicago Tribune ?What’s that college degree worth — $2 million or $248,000??Now, more than ever, it is important to invest your money wisely when it comes to attending college.  Never has it been so important as to have a positive return on your investment (ROI) with your educational career.  An extremely important question to ask when choosing a college today is, “Where can I get the best investment for my educational experience.”   The Chicago Tribune recently published a story on this topic where Morrison Tech was highlighted for its outstanding Return on Investment.

As college costs and student debt continue to rise precipitously, many are wondering if a college degree is worth it. Georgetown University’s Career on Education and the Workforce (CEW) has developed an interactive tool to help you research the value of your college degree.  Utilized in this process is the “Net Present Value” (NPV).  The NPV is how much a sum of money in the future is valued today, basically an estimate of the future value of attending a given school expressed in today’s dollars.

Based on the data acquired by the CEW, Morrison Tech lands as the #1 two year college in the Midwest for a 40 year NPV and 9th in the nation.

Comparing Morrison Tech to all four year and two year colleges in Illinois the college ranks as #7; falling ahead of all but one Illinois public university.  Comparing the college to all two year colleges in Illinois, Morrison Tech comes in as #1.
