Manhattan College was recently named as one of the top 100 private universities in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Best Value in Private Colleges’ survey.
The survey analyzed factors such as a high four-year graduation rate, low average student debt at graduation, good student-to-faculty ratio, excellent on-campus resources and overall great value to create their rankings. Manhattan College placed first among New York colleges for lowest total cost and lowest average debt for students at graduation. The College also ranked in the top 20 nationally for both of these categories.
“Manhattan College’s placement on the Kiplinger’s Best Value list is a recognition of our continued fulfillment of a core promise of our mission: to provide the best education possible at the most affordable price,” said Brennan O’Donnell, PhD., president of Manhattan College. “At a time when prospective students and their families are rightly asking tough questions about the value of a college education, we appreciate this endorsement of Manhattan College as an excellent value.”
