The salaries Ivy League students earn 10 years after college – it’s more than $110,000 for 2 schools – NBC New York

bulletin

The eight colleges that make up the Ivy League continue to attract an abundance of media attention, inspiring students from around the world to compete for places at the prestigious institutions.

There is also a good reason. The schools provide world-class education, often with courses taught by respected leaders and field experts. And the outcomes for Ivy League graduates speak to that.

Ivy League alumni often land high-paying jobs at top employers or found their own successful startups. For example, Matt Salzberg co-founded Blue Apron and Jennifer Hyman co-founded Rent the Runway, both after earning Harvard degrees.

Although the Ivy League has a reputation for enrolling students from wealthy families — who can go on to get high-paying jobs regardless of the university they attend — the schools also tend to hand out generous financial aid packages to low-income students.

Here are the average earnings, average annual expenses and average debt burden for former Ivy League students who received federal financial aid, according to the Department of Education’s College Scorecard.
