Last One Out...

Spoke to someone from the College of Business at a prominent Michigan public university today. He has a good friend at the Business College at Purdue. Both colleges keep track of their graduates, and where they ended up. Over 65% of the Purdue graduates reported finding jobs in the state of Indiana. But for the first time ever, the business school in Michigan reported that UNDER 40% of their graduates found employment in Michigan.

I guess we can offer the best higher education in the country, (and arguably, we do) but if there is no jobs market, those students will go other states to find employment.
