Experts: Overall success of graduates difficult to measure

Ronald Ehrenberg, director of the Cornell Higher Education Research Institute, said it’s difficult to get a handle on placement. To be useful, he said, placement rates would need to distinguish between students in different fields and compare those across universities. Even then, they may not prove as useful as income statistics.

“There is a lot of mobility across jobs by young college graduates and that is the reason that the use of post graduate income statistics several years out of college may be a much better measure,” Ehrenberg said.
