Wagner College was one of only 50 colleges throughout the country that was included in a highly exclusive new guide to best-value schools published by Princeton Review, “Colleges That Create Futures: 50 Schools That Launch Careers by Going Beyond the Classroom”
The New York Times ranked Wagner College #6 on a list of the highest “value added” colleges in the nation. "Common Sense" columnist James B. Stewart worked with Brookings Institution fellow Jonathan Rockwell on a scale measuring the value added by a college to what its students bring with them to campus.
