2021 Best Colleges in Missouri by Salary Score
We've ranked the top 25 universities in Missouri based on Salary Score. Students can use this list to see how colleges stack up in terms of alumni salary by major for a bachelor's degree. We determined Salary Score by comparing median alumni salaries for each program to data on the same programs from other universities. We then compiled these program scores into an overall Salary Score for each school. A high Salary Score indicates that a school produces alumni who tend to earn more than graduates with the same major across all schools. It's helpful to keep in mind that the cost of living differs in each state, so salaries might vary to reflect this. For example, Missouri is the sixth most affordable state by cost of living, so alumni may have lower salaries in line with lower living expenses. Even with a lower cost of living, however, the top 5 schools in Missouri all have higher Salary Scores than the median for colleges and universities in the U.S. Missouri's top school, Washington University in St. Louis, ranks #39 for best universities in the country by bachelor's degree Salary Score.
To be considered for our state rankings, schools must offer and provide data for at least 8 bachelor's programs. You can click on a school's name to view individual program scores. Read our methodology to learn more about how schools were ranked.
