Rated by Forbes and Money as one of the ‘best value’ colleges in the U.S.
Set on a picturesque 500 acres just 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Baltimore, the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) offers all the benefits and connections of living and studying in a big city, within a nurturing, safe and supportive learning environment.
The tree-lined pathways and open spaces of UMBC are in contrast to the high-tech and modern learning on offer, with the University being rated in the top 10 most innovative school in the United States by U.S. News & World Report 2020 and one of the United States’ leading STEM educators.
At the centre of UMBC’s innovation is its progressive teaching model – recognised as a new standard for higher education in the U.S. and characterised by strong student-faculty relationships combined with modern learning environments.
A total of 94% of UMBC’s graduate degree recipients are employed, undertaking further study or both, with top employers including Amazon, Cisco, General Electric and John Hopkins Hospital. The average salary of UMBC graduates is between $70,000 – $85,000.
With its strategic east coast location, less than an hour ride by car to the nation’s capital Washington DC, and a short flight to other major U.S. cities including New York and Philadelphia, UMBC offers students significant opportunities for internships and post-study employment. This is backed by the University’s 7000+ connections with employers and on-campus career fairs that attract more than 250 employers.
