Missouri University of Science and Technology is one of the nation’s top 25 “best bargain” campuses that offer a high return on investment (ROI), according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine.

Missouri S&T is among the “Cheap Schools That Pack an ROI Punch” as determined by Bloomberg BusinessWeek‘s analysis of earnings data for college graduates. The business magazine used data from PayScale, a salary comparison and benchmarking service, to calculate a 30-year net return on investment for more than 500 colleges and universities.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranks Missouri S&T 13th on the list of 25 best bargain campuses. These colleges and universities “boast a 30-year net return on investment that ranges from about $600,000 to more than $1.1 million, an improvement of 56 percent to 187 percent over the average for the entire sample. All of them sport decent graduation rates, too – in most cases, well above the 58 percent average.”

According to the BusinessWeek.com report, the 30-year return on investment for Missouri S&T graduates is $1,181,000. The annualized net ROI for obtaining a Missouri S&T degree is 12.4 percent, well above the 9 percent annualized ROI for all schools.
