Tips for selecting an online master’s program also included

LEXINGTON, Ky., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – eCampus.com creates an infographic based on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools 2014 guidebook to aid students in making post-grad decisions. The guidebook, which will be in stores April 9 but is already on sale at eCampus.com, is composed of a variety of articles written by education journalists, as well as U.S. News’ exclusive graduate school rankings, which consider factors like admissions rates and students’ success. The infographic, Best Grad Schools: Inside the Guide, takes critical information from the guidebook and converts it into a meaningful visual for students to consume easily.

Similar to the previous grad school infographic, the 2014 edition examines information selected from the five major professional graduate schools: business, health and medicine, law, engineering, and education, but has also included a section entitled “Virtual Path,” dedicated to the growth in popularity of online graduate programs.

Anne McGrath, Managing Editor at U.S. News & World Report, discusses how the book’s rankings, highlighted in the infographic, can aid students on the path to selecting a graduate program.

“In this year’s guide, we explore how degree programs are becoming more practical; to better prepare graduates to land good jobs.  Whether you’re weighing an M.B.A., a law degree, a master’s in engineering or education or a Ph.D. in physics, the advice and exclusive Best Grad School rankings we present in this book will help you make the smartest, most informed choices.”

As the economy recovers, so does the job market, allowing new opportunities to emerge. However, many of these open positions will require candidates to have more than an undergraduate degree. By looking at trends across a spectrum of fields, students will be better equipped to selecting a career path that will pay off.

Matt Montgomery, President and CEO of eCampus.com, is confident that students will find value in “Best Grad Schools: Inside the Guide.

“Graduate school is a serious financial consideration, and the facts presented in this infographic shed light on academic trends and potential returns on an educational investment in a practical format that students can understand. Our focus has been the same since 1999: to save students time and money. From providing cheap textbooks to presenting critical information regarding post graduate options, we are always working to make students’ lives easier.”

The Best Graduate Schools 2014 guidebook is available to purchase at eCampus.com for $8.95, which is cheaper than other outlets. Additionally, you can access the full infographic and unique embed code for sharing at http://ecampus.com/best-grad-schools.asp.
