CARMEL, Ind., Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ITT Technical Institute campuses rank among the top performing two-year colleges based on graduate earnings, according to a recent Brookings Institution report. The rankings cover more than 3,000 colleges.
The ITT Tech campuses included in the report did at least 88 percent better than two-year colleges based on the value ITT Tech adds to the median earnings of graduates 10 years after enrollment.
The report identifies college quality factors strongly associated with higher earnings for graduates. Consistent with these quality factors, ITT Tech offers:
- STEM orientation – Approximately 90 percent of students are enrolled in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math-related fields of study.
- Curriculum value – Programs are offered in high-demand fields of study, such as information technology, electronics, drafting and design, business and healthcare.
"Our strong employer network also allows us to serve students well," said Gene Feichtner, president and chief operating officer of ITT Educational Services, Inc. "More than 3,500 employers visited campuses last year to participate in ITT Tech's Program Advisory Committees and provide feedback on our courses based on their needs."
