Though it's best known for its "City of Sin," Nevada is home to a handful of graduate schools included in PayScale's College Salary Report. If you are interested in getting a master's degree in Nevada, you can use this list to estimate how much their graduates earn -- giving you not only an idea of what school is a good academic fit, but also which one will provide you with a sound financial investment. Two of the schools on our list are non-MBA master's programs and one is for MBAs.
Among the top graduate schools in Nevada, alumni from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) and University of Nevada at Reno earn a median mid-career salary.
Interestingly, students from UNR report one of the highest percentages of students who find high meaning in their careers -- that number near 75 percent.
When looking at MBA programs, however, UNR is a slightly smaller school with 3,082 to UNLV 4,751, and both colleges have a fairly even slip of men and women (48 percent men at UNR, 44 percent at UNLV), and are great schools for sports fans.
