October 8, 2015



Stonehill graduates’ workforce preparedness and employability were recently recognized in a new rankings report by Educate To Career (ETC), which specializes in data driven, outcome-focused tools that enable high school students and their parents to make informed, objective college and career planning decisions. Out of 1,182 U.S. colleges and universities, Stonehill ranked 45th overall and second in Massachusetts on its College Rankings Index which quantifies and compares each college's record for improving the labor market outcomes for its students.

The ETC College Rankings Index is the only system that rates colleges on "economic value added." ETC defines economic value added as being the improvement in earnings and employability of graduates measured against the total cost of a four-year education.

Some of the metrics used in calculating the college rankings include:

  • Percentage of graduates employed in occupations which utilize their field of study
  • Average salary earned by recent graduates, by school for each major category (adjusted for region, occupation and other variables)
  • Percentage of persons employed within one year of graduation (weighted on an occupational trend basis)
  • Major, weighted against national norms
  • Number of years to graduate
  • Tuition- in state, net cost
  • Loan default rates
