The Farmer School of Business has been named one of the top 10 schools in the nation for students' early-career return on investment by Poets & Quants for Undergrads.

“To calculate an early ROI, we took the average salary of 2020 graduates, multiplied it by five for five years of work, and subtracted that total from the estimated total cost of earning a degree from that school in four years,” the magazine said. The calculation assumes no financial aid or scholarships.

The Farmer School was ranked 10th overall and ninth among public schools with a five-year ROI of $207,734.

Farmer School dean and Mitchell P. Rales Chair in Business Leadership Jenny Darroch noted, “While there are a myriad of organizations creating business school rankings, Poets & Quants is one of the few that uses only quantitative, verifiable data to calculate their reports. As such, being ranked in their Top 10 provides excellent validation that Farmer School students are highly sought-after by some of the top companies.”

“We are thrilled to see Miami's Farmer School of Business recognized for its early-career return on investment," Miami President Gregory Crawford said. "Not only does this top-ten honor speak to the high quality teaching and curriculum of our business school, but it speaks to the successes of our high caliber students and high achieving alumni." 

In January, P&Q for Undergrads ranked the Farmer School as one of the top 20 public undergraduate business schools in the nation. Its entrepreneurship department has been ranked as a top-10 among public universities for 13 consecutive years.
