Broward College Graduates Highest Earners in the State

​​​HighestEarnersPic.jpg​​​​According to the Florida Department of Education’s recent economic study, Broward College graduates not only meet the demands of the job market, but also make more money their first year of employment, than those completing the same degrees at other schools. The report, which is a result of the partnership between the State of Florida and College Measures, documents the variations in median first-year wages of graduates from two-year and four-year higher education institutions.

The report, which is broken down by specific degree program, documents Broward College associate degree holders as making more money than the statewide averages. The median first-year earnings of associate in arts (A.A.) graduates is $27,712, which is higher than the statewide average of $26,504. For associate in science degrees (A.S.), 84 percent of Broward College graduates are employed and rank number one in income, making $49,970, which is considerably more than the statewide average of $45,060. Associate in applied science (AAS) degree holders, especially those with an A.A.S. in Business Administration, earned approximately $10,000 more than graduates of other colleges.

For Postsecondary Adult Vocational (PSAV) certificates, which are non-credit, career-training programs, Broward College graduates rank as the highest earners in the entire state, with a first-year average of $53,366. Law enforcement PSAV’s are also the highest ranking with graduates making $59,092.

“Through meticulous research of job trends, the College is committed to training our students with the skills they need to become valuable contributors in high demand fields,” said Mildred Coyne, associate vice president for career and technical education. “This recognition illustrates the positive impact Broward College’s programs have on the success of our graduates”
