Ipsos Study Finds Strong ROI for Graduates of Programs Supported by Academic Partnerships
Survey reveals double-digit salary increases, short tuition payback period
DALLAS, Sept. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Academic Partnerships (AP) today shared new survey results from Ipsos that show a strong return on investment (ROI) for graduates of AP-supported degree programs. AP commissioned the Ipsos study, which included interviews with 916 recent graduates of 25 partner universities, amidst the national conversation about the cost and value of higher education.
The survey found that recent graduates of AP-supported programs averaged double-digit salary increases, a short tuition payback period of 1.2 years, and overwhelmingly affirmed the value of their degrees.
Key findings from the Ipsos study include:
"The rising costs of higher education and the resulting student debt have created a crisis," said Fernando Bleichmar, EO of Academic Partnerships. "At AP, we have made it a priority to work with universities committed to developing high-quality online degree programs at an affordable cost, and the results of this survey show tremendous progress and success. Ultimately, none of this would be possible without the great work of our university partners who offer valuable degree programs in critical workforce areas. We look forward to continuing to expand this model to help address the current crisis."
"Higher education is a significant investment of both time and money," said Jennifer Berg, Vice President from Ipsos. "Graduates of AP-supported programs affirm that pursuing their degree is, indeed, worth the investment."
