BU gets recognized again for economic value

Bradley University is getting recognized again for being a school that combines high quality academics with economic value. Kiplinger’s Personal Finance ranked BU among the top 60 on its list of the nation’s best values in private universities. Bradley was ranked 57. That’s 29 places better than last year’s ranking.

The publication considers factors such as retention rate, class size, test scores of incoming freshmen and graduates rates as well as cost data like tuition and financial aid. This is the fifth consecutive year Bradley has been recognized by Kiplinger’s.

The school was also recognized in the Washington Monthly Magazine’s Best Bang for the Buck listing earlier this fall.
