The Philadelphia Business Journal recently released a list of the top college values in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Region. The list was developed by a company called Niche (www.niche.com). It uses a variety of objective data to develop its ranking including net price, alumni earnings, graduation rates, and students debt. The data originates, primarily, from the US Department of Education. The company develops a Niche Value Grade for each institution.
Niche ranked Holy Family University at #11 in the Philadelphia area. The ranking places HFU above all of its smaller, direct competitors. The only religious-based institutions that rank above HFU are Villanova University and Lasalle University.
We feel that this validates what we do for our students in the School of Business. We focus on ways in which students can put their degrees to work. Our emphasis on applying concepts to practice and career preparation, sets students up for successful careers. Our faculty all have professional backgrounds and they bring that background into the classrom. We think this translates into positive outcomes upon graduation.
