The quickest answer is – attend Massachusetts Maritime Academy, home of the Buccaneers and ranked “Top College for Return on Investment” by the College Database, a free, non-commercial website dedicated to providing current and future post-secondary students with accurate college and career related information.
This group recently rated the Academy as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’s number one college in the 20-30 category. Students receive a quality education for less than $20,000 annually, sending graduates into careers with starting salaries of over $30,000 on average.
PayScale 2013 College ROI (Return On Investment) Report also places the Academy high on the list. This time MMA placed #15 on a national list. According to those stat gathers, “Attending college is an investment of time and money. PayScale has ranked more that 1,000 U.S. colleges and universities, including private, public and for-profit schools, to determine the potential financial return of attending each school given the cost of tuition and the payoff in median lifetime earnings associated with each school.”
Just this week, the Academy made an appearance as number four on the Affordable Colleges online site – the article or list, Public Colleges Whose Grads Make Millions. According to these professionals, ”The following public colleges and universities belong to a very exclusive club: their graduates earn, on average, at least one million dollars more over 30 years than non-degree holders. These sixteen institutions represent the absolute cream of the crop, the top 1% of colleges in the U. S. when it comes to return on investment.”
