Is MBC a good school?

The definition of a "good school" is different for different people. Admissions difficulty and admitted student statistics can give you a sense of how competitive a college is, but they don't tell you how happy or successful students are. There are a few statistics that can give you a good idea of how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its students.

Retention, graduation, and job placement statistics all give valuable information about the quality of the student experience, before and after graduation.

Retention and graduation rates

Out of the 51 students who started at MBC as first-time freshman, 26 graduate within four years.

MBC's six-year graduation for undergrads is 55 percent. Compare this to the average six-year graduation rate for colleges and universities in the U.S., which is around 61 percent for public schools and 67 percent for private.

Job outcomes and student debt

Job placement rates after graduation, average starting salaries, and the debt students graduate with can all give important clues about the value of a degree from a specific school. Graduates in the class of 2021 had an average of $21,020 in student loans per borrower. For context, compare this number with the average national debt, which is around $36,000 per borrower.

Based on this information, how does MBC sound? Remember, a school that is perfect for one person may be a terrible fit for another! So the real question to ask yourself: is MBC a good school for YOU?
