PayScale.com ranks Loyola in top 3 percent of U.S. universities for mid-career salary potential
A new report from compensation database PayScale.com ranks Loyola University Maryland tied for No. 26 of more than 1,000 U.S. colleges and universities for mid-career median salary potential of graduates.
The 2012-2013 PayScale College Salary Report also ranks Loyola No. 3 out of 175 southeastern schools based on the same mid-career salary data. PayScale found that the mid-career median salary of a Loyola graduate is $104,000, second highest of any school in Maryland. PayScale lists the median starting salary of a Loyola graduate as $48,300.
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.
