The Value of a degree

The Value of a degree

What’s a university degree really worth? More than you think, according to the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada – and the payback is greater than just money.

A university graduate will earn $1.3 million more over his or her lifetime than someone who has not gone beyond high school. University graduates earn $1 million more than community college graduates, says AUCC, the group that represents Canada’s 95 universities and university degree-level colleges.
