College Measures has Won Investment from The Gates Foundation to Develop Three New Tools


May 15, 2013 02:31

College Measures has won investment from the Gates Foundation to develop three tools, all designed to help inform decisions about the economic value of different schools, degrees, and majors. These will ensure students have the data to help inform their decision about higher education and their place in the workforce. The students and their families will be better equipped to decide where and what to study, and how much to spend and/or borrow to achieve a degree. The beneficiaries will be able to see what degrees will give them the best chance to get a job and earn a strong wage upon graduation.

The tools: 

•     The College Investment Tool (CIT) provides a clear, understandable estimate of net return on higher education investment by degree, by major and by institution

•     The Labor Market Demand Tool (LMDT) maps the supply and demand of labor in the field of study, in both local and state labor markets

•     The E-learning Module ensures that financial and economic concepts and their implications are understood and can inform decisions about majors and degrees.
