2011 Highest Paid College Graduates

Posted By Jim On 12/27/2010 @ 12:45 pm In Education | 5 Comments

These lists are fun to read but I never take them too seriously because how much someone is paid depends on so many factors, their alma mater included. That said, it’s still interesting to see who gets the top spots and this year the highest paid, as measured by both mid-career median salary and starting median salary, isn’t an Ivy League university and has an undergraduate enrollment of under 800.

  1. Harvey Mudd College: Mid-career median salary of $126,000 and a starting median salary of $68,900. 757 undergraduate enrollment with a 2010-2011 tuition of over forty thousand dollars.
  2. Princeton University: Mid-career median salary of $123,000, starting median salary of $58,900. Tuition of $36,640.
  3. Dartmouth University: Mid-career median salary of $123,000, starting median salary of $54,100. Tuition of $40,437.
  4. Harvard University: Mid-career median salary of $121,000, starting median salary of $57,300. Tuition of $38,416.
  5. California Institute of Technology: Mid-career median salary of $120,000, starting median salary of $69,900. Tuition of $36,282.

Sixth through eighth were MIT, Stanford, and Colgate, in that order.
