Better than Harvard

Missouri S&T grads command higher starting salaries on average than Harvard grads.

In September, ABC News asked PayScale for a list of colleges and universities whose graduates earn higher salaries than Harvard graduates right out of college. There were 12 of them.

That data, based on 2010 earnings, showed that Missouri S&T grads earn an average starting salary of $58,600, while Harvard grads earn an average of $54,100 in their first jobs. That’s a pretty good return on investment considering annual tuition is $40,866 at Harvard and only $9,350 ($32,666 for out-of-state students) at S&T.
