UNC-CH once again the top value in public higher education

Bookmark and Share

In other news, the sun still rises in the east.

UNC-Chapel Hill has defended one of its long-held titles, earning, yet again, the "best value in public higher education" tag from Kiplinger, a finance magazine.

UNC-CH has received this designation every year since 1998. 

This year, a twist. In its explanation about why UNC-CH is so affordable, Kiplinger makes reference to the university's hiring of Bain & Company, the private consultant that took a close look at the institution's administrative and financial functions to look for waste and inefficiency.

It was a controversial move at first on campus, but in the greater world of higher education, several big institutions took note and followed UNC's lead. 

NCSU is 10th on this list, by the way, and several other North Carolina colleges make the grade as well.
