Monday, June 3, 2013

PHILADELPHIA (June 3, 2013) – PayScale recently released a list of more than 1,500 schools measured solely by the 30-year return on investment (ROI) for bachelor’s degrees. At No. 4 on the list of b-schools, Saint Joseph's University's Haub School of Business (HSB) was recognized for graduates' outstanding career advancement.

The largest Jesuit business school in the country, the Haub School of Business also rated high for mid-career and beginning salaries. PayScale lists the typical starting salary after graduation at $45,900.

HSB has followed an industry-focused niche strategy to create unique academic programs that appeal to the needs of both the market and its student population. The Haub School's alumni base is nearly 23,000 strong, representing 51 countries. Top employers include: ACE Group, Ernst & Young, Grant Thornton, Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan Chase, KPMG, MMI Brand, Philadelphia Insurance Companies, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Sanofi Pasteur, and Wegmans.

PayScale’s ratings were based on a methodology that surveyed graduates and employees, taking into account a number of variables. Ultimately, the organization aimed to determine the potential financial return of attending a college given the cost of tuition and the payoff in median lifetime earnings associated with each school.
