A New Way of Measuring Value in Higher Ed
The top reasons students attend an institution of higher education are to increase their employability and gain financial security. With tens of billions of dollars in tuition checks and taxpayer dollars flowing to schools each year, it’s critical that students and families understand how long it will take to see a return on their investment. In response, we developed the Price-to-Earnings Premium (PEP), a new way of determining how long it takes students to recoup their educational costs at institutions across the United States. This series of resources introduces the Price-to-Earnings Premium concept and offers insight into how institutions across the United States are delivering economic value to their students.
