“Service-minded students are becoming savvier about their finances,” said Best Value Schools editor Paul Church. “Getting a degree from a university with a track record of exceptional return on investment is high on their list.”

Successful business leaders overwhelmingly agree that community involvement offers valuable benefits to career-minded individuals in the areas of professional and personal development as well as personal satisfaction. According to statistics from Harvard Business School, up to 98 percent of Harvard executives think nonprofit service is “important” or “very important” for success. Best Value Schools concurs with this view, and the site recommends that students consider schools with high levels of community service; however, users are also cautioned to factor in the returns on tuition investment over the course of a typical 30-year career.
