MIT: Highest ROI Ratio of Any Engineering School

MIT may lose to Caltech in overall ROI, but when it comes to gender equality, they’ve got a lot going for them. 45% of their student body is female, making it the second-highest for all engineering schools in our list, and they have the highest female-to-male ROI ratio of any engineering school we ranked. The difference between thirty-year ROI for men and women is only $56,000. Note that these numbers don’t account for job title, industry or other factors that may influence pay. The fact that both men and women earn an ROI of over $1,400,000 for attending MIT goes to show that there is real value in pursuing a field in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM).

Percent Male Students: 55%
Percent Female Students: 45%
Overall ROI: $1,606,000
Male ROI: $1,515,000
