Mount Union Named a Top College in Ohio for Alumni Earnings Among Recent Graduates

March 24, 2021

ALLIANCE, Ohio — The University of Mount Union was recently announced as one of the 2021 Best Colleges in Ohio for bachelor’s degree Salary Score by Optimal’s GradReports. The institution was ranked eighth in the state and third in the Northeast Ohio region. 

GradReports compared the salaries of more than 4.6 million college graduates to determine Salary Scores for more than 885 college degrees, then used the scores to rank the 2021 Best Colleges at the associate, bachelor's, and master's levels. 

The Salary Score is based on median alumni earnings and median alumni debt in the year after graduating, using data from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard. The score compares the median alumni salary for a specific program at one school to the median alumni salary for the same program at other schools, allowing prospective students to see which schools offer top earnings for that program. 

Alumni of Mount Union’s programs in biology, computer science, and mechanical engineering all had salary scores in at least the 75th percentile of the national average.
