Duquesne Called One of Nation's Top 50 'Best Value' Online Graduate Schools
Based on a calculation of the total cost of a Duquesne University education, its 20-year return on investment and other measures, Duquesne has been named one of the nation's Top 50 Best Value Online Graduate Schools for 2015 by Value Colleges.
"Our website guides students to the most trustworthy programs with the lowest student debt and highest returns with our fully researched rankings and FAQs," said Carrie Sealey-Morris, editor of Value Colleges.
Duquesne is listed as No. 41 in the rankings, which considered all accredited graduate schools in the country, looking at the transparency of return on investment and tuition data. U.S. News & World Report rankings were also a factor.
According to the website, the rankings are targeted to "professional adults who want to continue working while they build their educational resume, or workers who see a graduate degree as a ticket from unstable jobs to stable careers."
Founded in 1878, Duquesne is consistently ranked among the nation's top Catholic universities for its award-winning faculty and tradition of academic excellence. Duquesne, a campus of nearly 9,500 graduate and undergraduate students, has been nationally recognized for its academic programs, community service and commitment to sustainability.
