Students Who Study Technical Education May Earn More

Published: September 02, 2016
A new white paper, entitled “Preparing our Students for Career Success – What Parents Should Know” examines the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard and U.S. labor market trends to provide insights on choosing educational paths that lead to well-paying jobs. The analysis finds that students who choose an industry-aligned technical education can go on to earn more than their peers at some of the nation’s most-selective liberal arts universities. The paper was written by Douglas Young on behalf of Universal Technical Institute. You can download the white paper here: www.uti.edu/prepare4future.
