大學念名校 一生可增加多少財富?

(World Journal) 編譯季晶晶

美國日前爆出大學入學舞弊案,明星和富豪行賄以便子女能「走後門」擠進名校,導致50人遭起訴。外界大惑不解:進哪家大學或履歷表有無名校加持,真的很重要嗎?根據美國NBC電視網,答案取決於你問誰而不同。

醜聞爆發之前,美國前總統歐巴馬在猶他州鹽湖城參加一項科技會議,他說:「我不知道為我工作的人都上哪幾家大學。我只問:他們能否把工作做好?」

但數據顯示,長春藤名校耶魯大學(Yale)畢業生的平均起薪是6萬8300美元,比密西西比河谷州立大學(Mississippi Valley State University)的3萬2000美元高出一倍。進入名校不僅只是想起薪多幾萬美元而已,也希望為履歷表增添份量。


阿肯色大學教育政策和心理學政策的助理教授強納森・魏(Jonathan Wai)去年公布的分析研究顯示,富比世的最具影響力人物排行榜,有超過50%的女性和超過80%的男性都唸名校。每年1月在瑞士達沃斯舉辦的世界經濟論壇(WEF),90%的學術界人士和40%的企業執行長當初念的是名校。 富比世億萬富豪排行榜,也有超過40%的人進名校。

對覺得小孩上哪家大學是自身社會地位另一表徵的父母來說,大學入學申請因此成為不遺餘力的追求。

《父酬者:姓氏、階級與社會不流動》一書作者克拉克說:「大多數父母,尤其是上流社會,都非常重視子女的社會和經濟成就,願意砸時間或重金追求這些目標。他們只是想確保子女獲得最好的,不是想損害他人的機會。但是這個社會只有這麼多具地位、影響力和財富的位子。」

對那些不必擔心學費沒著落的小孩來說,他們的重點變成學校聲望和排名,父母的期待形成莫大壓力。

其實上大學取得學位就已經是一項重要成就,可開啟新的職涯機會,創造更高的終身收入,儘管性別差異仍舊存在。根據美國社會安全局,擁有學士學位的男性一生可增加90萬美元收入,女性則增加63萬美元。所以,從這個角度來看,到哪裡上大學不一定重要,重要的是要念完。

好消息是凡事都有例外。臉書創辦人查克柏格、已故蘋果執行長喬布斯和微軟創辦人蓋茲都是大學輟學但白手成家的億萬富翁,登上今年富比世富豪榜的最年輕億萬富翁凱莉.詹娜,年紀相當於大四生,卻不追求學歷。

College admissions scandal: Does attending an elite school mean you'll earn more money?

By Zlati Meyer, USA TODAY

The college admissions scam involving Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman shows how some rich families use a “side door” to game an already unfair education system.

Time is money, but so is a degree from an elite school.

That's usually what motivates the parents of high-school students to go all out to get them into top-tier colleges.

The largest-ever admissions bribery case – which includes Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and Wake Forest universities and the University of Southern California – unfolded on Tuesday and rocked the country. Chatter ranged from the alleged involvement of actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Laughlin in the scandal to social media one-upmanship/one-downmanship with people posting where they did and didn't go to college.

But the bloodsport of gaining admission to a high-ranking college goes beyond prestige and car-window stickers, a.k.a. bragging rights. It comes down to one word – money.

Graduating from big-name schools translates into better jobs and higher salaries, according to conventional wisdom. Plus, there are the auxiliary benefits that also lead to cash – powerful alumni networks, name recognition that attracts the interest of hiring managers and the right collegiate brand to catapult graduating seniors to top-notch graduate schools, which are themselves tickets to more money.

Colleges and universities conferred approximately 2 million bachelor's degrees in 2015-2016, according to the most recent data from U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics. Plus, they awarded more than 785,000 master's degrees and close to 178,000 doctorates.

"There's no question: If you get into a prestigious institution, it will create opportunities," said Lynn Pasquerella, president of the Association of American Colleges and Universities. "It’s an elite, selective club."

Admissions scandal stems from money, prestige

An oft-quoted study from 2015 found that what you studied made a difference. If you're in liberal arts or business, the school counts, but that's not the case for someone in science, technology, engineering and math, also known as STEM. A decade after graduating, the biggest difference was among business majors; people who graduated from elite schools made an average of 12 percent more than students who earned their degrees at mid-tier schools and 18 percent more than graduates of less-selective and open-enrollment schools.

The road to better jobs is well trod from the brand-name schools. Recruiters return year after year because they know past hires from there have done well.

"Elite colleges get that advantage because recruiters tend to be from companies that pay more for prestigious positions," said Aviva Legatt, an Ardmore, Pennsylvania-based college admission consultant with as many as 50 clients every year, who declined to disclose her fees. "As a hiring manager, you might feel they have been pre-vetted by these colleges."

It's not just first jobs straight out of college. Later on in people's careers, head hunters still take note of job-seekers' alma maters. And that good first job leads to a second good job and with that better pay.

Good jobs, alumni connections, grad schools among the bounty

Alisa Levin, of the New York City-based legal-recruiting firm Greene-Levin-Snyder, said clients favor top-tier schools over local ones because those alumni have an "instant credibility" that graduates of non-exclusive institutions don't.

"Twenty-five years out and they’ll still want to see transcripts... It's a forever thing," she said. "People want people who others want. If you've already won one race, you're more likely to win another."

Also important are alumni connections. The more esteemed the school, the more valuable the ties. Turning to fellow graduates for help – an introduction, a well-placed resume, an invitation to shmooze – keeps the cycle going from graduation gown to shroud.

"For every person you know in a field, that counts as much as submitting more than 150 resumes to an institution where you don't know anybody," said Pasquerella. "It’s hugely important to connecting... for their first job opportunities."

Levin called illustrious alumni networks "priceless," pointing out the powerful access they provide.

Not everyone believes an elite B.A. gets you from point A to point B, though.

Tony Carnevale, director of Georgetown University's Center on Education and the Workforce, said that the advantages garnered from a top-tier school can disappear within four years of working and that getting a job through an alumni connection is "something that goes back to the Gilded Age" and long gone. Plus does a public-school teacher who went to Harvard make more than one who graduated from a state school?

"It's an aristocracy posing as a meritocracy; it’s more about Vanity Fair than Les Miserables," he said. "People spend tens of thousands of dollars to (send their children) to the right preschool because it’s a straight shot to Yale. The whole system is rigged in their favor."
