UP gets kudos for value

Bloomberg Businessweek has named University of Portland the top school in Oregon for “return on investment” for the second consecutive year. In a state-by-state ranking of schools providing graduates with the most return for the price of their education, University of Portland came out on top among all colleges and universities in Oregon.

Bloomberg Businessweek estimates that the 30-year net return on investment for University of Portland students is $327,600, or an annual return of 8.6 percent. UP’s net return on investment is more than twice the national average of $152,114 for all 1,248 schools included in the rankings and places UP among the top 15% of schools nationwide.
UP's net return on investment is bolstered by the high number of graduates in medical professions, engineering, and business, as well as its high graduation rate. “This ranking shows that the University of Portland is a sound investment for our students and their families,” said Holy Cross Father William Beauchamp, president of the university. “But what I am most proud of is that as our students continue to outperform their competition, they are still true to the university’s core tenets of educating the hand, heart and mind.”
