Brookings Study Ranks DYC as Among Best in WNY for "Value-Added Mid Career Earnings"

The “Beyond College Rankings” report measures the influence individual colleges have on the success of their graduates.

Buffalo, New York – June 29, 2015 – An article in the Buffalo News reports the D’Youville College scored highly on a Brookings Institution’s “value added” assessment of about 4,000 schools nationwide.

The “Beyond College Rankings” report measures the influence individual colleges have on the success of their graduates.

According to the article, "The researchers developed a “predicted economic outcome” for students at each institution, based upon 20 variables at all schools. Then they examined actual alumni outcomes, as found in mid-career earnings data from PayScale.com. The difference between the predicted outcome and the actual outcome is considered the “value-added” for a school."

At D'Youville, actual mid-career earnings for a typical graduate were $72,700. D'Youville scored an 82 out of a maximum of 100 in value-added for mid-career earnings. The study credited the quality of D'Youville's curriculum and its orientation toward STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines for adding the value.

The Brookings study is available at brookings.edu and includes a searchable database of schools.
