“A certificate or degree can go a long way when it comes to starting or advancing a career,” said Wes Ricketts, senior vice president of LearnHowToBecome.org. “These colleges and universities in Arizona have demonstrated their value to students who want to be prepared for their role in the job market. Post-college earnings, employment resources and high program caliber were all evaluated to determine which schools belonged on our list.”

To be included on Arizona’s “Best Colleges” list, schools must be regionally accredited, not-for-profit institutions.
