No surprise: Carolina is # 1.
The quants at Zippia, a new website devoted to providing expert career advice, have created an algorithm for ranking the success of universities in training and placing their Economics majors. They considered eight metrics for program success, including mean earnings after six and ten years, the cost of attending the university and the average amount of debt incurred in completing the degree. The answer is no surprise: Carolina Economics is #1. The next three on the list: Duke, Davidson, Wake Forest.
