PayScale, Inc., creator of the world's largest online salary database, has released its annual College Salary Report for 2016 and placed County College of Morris (CCM) in the top 25 ranking in terms of community college alumni who earn the highest salaries when it comes to mid-career median earnings.
The PayScale survey ranked hundreds of two-year colleges by how much their alumni go on to earn, and CCM secured the 18th position in the ranking for Best Community & Career Colleges by Salary Potential. All data used to produce the College Salary Report were collected from employees who successfully completed PayScale's employee survey.
In the associate degree only category (381 institutions), only employees who possess an associate degree and no higher degrees were included. This means associate degree graduates who went on to earn a bachelor's degree, master's degree, doctorate or other advanced degrees were not included.
CCM alumni’s median mid-career pay is $64,100 compared to that of Fashion Institute of Technology - New York’s $74,600 median mid-career pay at rank one.
“The college has established itself as a provider of high-quality education for nearly 50 years,” says Dr. Anthony J. Iacono, CCM president. “We strive to provide pathways for students to achieve their dreams and goals and are proud they’re making a mark in the world as confident, accomplished and successful professionals.”
