See how Michigan colleges stack up by earning potential


It's no secret that a college degree can increase your lifetime earning potential.

Just having a degree can open the door to more job opportunities and increase the likelihood of getting a call-back interview. That said, no degree (or university) is created equal. Investing in your education is a serious endeavor, especially considering that as of 2012 71 percent of college graduates were burdened by debt.

So before you start signing up for classes, take a peek Money Magazine's  U.S. college rankings to see how Michigan college and universities stack up to one another in regard to earning potential.

*Rank overall reflects each institution's national rank, not rank by earning potential.
