“The job outlook in Michigan continues to be positive as the state’s economy improves, and that’s great news for students seeking a degree,” said Wes Ricketts, senior vice president of LearnHowToBecome.Org. “The schools on our list have established a commitment to student success, as demonstrated by their employment services and the average earnings of their alumni after graduation.”

To be included on Michigan’s “Best Colleges” list, schools must be regionally accredited, not-for-profit institutions. Each college is also scored on additional data that includes annual alumni earnings 10 years after entering college, career services offered, availability of financial aid and such additional metrics as student/teacher ratios and graduation rates.
