Description

In this study, I examined the effects of acceptance rates, loan borrowing, field of study, and four-year cost of attending tertiary education programs on early career payoff. I found that acceptance rates and percentage of students that are STEM majors (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) are statistically significant in early career pay utilizing a cross sectional data model from the top twenty universities and worst twenty universities in terms of salary earned after graduation, and the twenty best universities in terms of career placement post-graduation.
