PayScale, Inc. today announced its 2010 College Salary Report. The report, which analyzes the company’s database of over 23 million unique compensation profiles, provides a critical perspective on the relationship between college selection and both starting and mid-career salaries.
After two years at #1 for mid-career pay, Dartmouth College slipped to a tie with Princeton for #2 in the 2010 study, with Harvey Mudd College of Claremont CA taking the #1 spot. The new #1 for starting pay is the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), edging out Loma Linda University, last year’s #1.
The report highlights that even during the economic volatility of the last 24 months, Engineering Schools continue to hold their value: 7 of top 10 for starting pay are schools with strong engineering programs, with the other 3 being strong in nursing and allied healthcare fields.
