A new report from compensation database PayScale.com ranks Loyola University Maryland No. 45 of more than 1,000 U.S. colleges and universities for mid-career median salary potential of graduates.
The 2011-2012 PayScale College Salary Report also ranks Loyola No. 5 out of 303 private, non-profit institutions and No. 5 among all southern schools based on the same mid-career salary data. PayScale found that the mid-career median salary of a Loyola graduate is $98,800, the highest of any school in Maryland. PayScale lists the median starting salary of a Loyola graduate as $47,500.
All data used to produce PayScale's rankings were collected from employees who successfully completed PayScale's employee survey. Median starting salary data for each school was derived from surveys of full-time employees with five years of experience or fewer in their career or field who hold a bachelor's degree and no higher degrees. Median mid-career salary data was derived from surveys of full-time employees with at least 10 years of experience in their career or field who hold a bachelor's degree and no higher degrees.
Earlier this year, PayScale ranked Loyola in the top 10% of U.S. universities for return on investment.
