Friday, July 31, 2009

University of Tulsa graduates have the highest earning potential among Oklahoma colleges and are some of the top paid in the region, according to a recent report.

PayScale -- a market leader in global online compensation data – noted TU graduates with a bachelor’s degree earn a starting median salary of over $43,000 and a mid-career salary of over $85,000.

This places TU among the top in Oklahoma, and 27 out of more than 150 schools in the southern United States.

The New York Times used the PayScale data for its July 20 article, “Do Elite Colleges Produce the Best-Paid Graduates?”
