How We Work

Dedicated to obtaining reliable, student-centered education and career information, TopManagementDegrees.com integrates the perspectives of business and management students, professional managers, and experts from various industries. We also ground our various rankings, guides, and articles in big data derived from the nation's most authoritative education and economic research agencies.

The challenging, complex task of ranking academic programs requires consideration of many factors. These factors include student outcomes and institutional performance measures, such as return-on-investment, graduation rates, and post-graduation employment and salary data.

Consulting big data sources, such as the U.S. Department of Education (ED), the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), we analyze large-scale, representative data sets to arrive at data-driven conclusions. These regularly updated sources enable us to provide current insight into educational and economic trends.

An agency operated by the U.S. Department of Labor, the BLS gathers, analyzes, and reports data and statistics on labor economics. The BLS provides job descriptions, median salaries, and job outlooks for various occupations across the nation. These BLS career pages inform our career guides, helping us identify and describe job and salary prospects for students.

We also consult the ED, a federal agency that collects school data and manages federal education assistance policies. The College Scorecard, an online tool provided by the ED, offers information on attendance costs, student loan debt rates, and repayment data for specific schools. Prospective students can also consult the College Scorecard for other school quality information, such as transparency and accreditation standards.

TopManagementDegrees.com also uses machine-learning from the NCES, a research center that collects national and international education information for the ED's education sciences institute. The NCES offers a college navigator tool for users seeking data on school programs, expenses, and student outcome data.
