PayScale's 2016-2017 College Salary Report reports on salary data for alumni of a total of 1,388 schools. Methodology All data used to produce PayScale's College Salary Report were collected from employees who successfully completed PayScale's employee survey. Babson College data came from surveys of alumni who just possess a bachelor's degree, and also those who went on to get a higher degree (master's degree, MBA, MD, JD, PhD, or other advanced degrees). Of the approximate 2,600 bachelor's degree granting schools in the U.S, the PayScale College Salary Report 2016-17 includes 983 schools. A school's inclusion in or exclusion from the PayScale College Salary Report 2016-17 is not based on school quality, typical graduate earnings, selectivity, or location within the U.S. PayScale plans to expand the number of schools for future versions of this report as data becomes available.
