Montana Tech Named a Top Online College with the Best ROI


Badge for the Best Online ROI CollegeCollege Consensus has released the top 50 online colleges with the Best ROI for 2019. The top five universities are South Dakota School of Mines, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, Mount Carmel College of Nursing, Missouri University of Science and Technology and Montana Tech.

College Consensus is dedicated to guiding students to the institutions that have proven they can not only account for themselves, but really change people’s lives with online education.

Montana Tech offers four online programs with high return on investment. The university offers an online graduate certificate in Health Care Informatics, a master’s degree in Industrial Hygiene, a master’s degree in Project Engineering and Management, and a bachelor of science certificate in Nursing Completion Post-Licensure.

The 50 Online Colleges with the Best ROI ranking uses Payscale College ROI Report data to rank colleges offering fully online and hybrid degree programs. Payscale’s formula for ROI is relatively simple, based on a formula which takes into account the cost of the degree, and the amount of income a graduate should make over what they would have made without the degree.

The online programs focus on specific areas of study and specialized certifications. Students can choose from three graduate programs or two online certifications. While the school focuses primarily on technological or engineering studies, you also have options for an online certification for students who complete a bachelor’s in nursing and want a professional designation.

According to College Consensus, “The way Montana Tech stands apart from other colleges and universities is the flexibility of their online programs and the specialized areas of study. The school offers specific online degree programs that have a high return on investment for students. Since the online programs allow students to work on their degree from any location, it is ideal for out-of-state students or military students who may need to work around their obligations and cannot attend traditional classes.”
