Media_httprapiddevelo_sgcqa(Rapid Development)South Dakota’s New Mining Grads Beat Harvard for Pay(Higher Ed Bubble Update: South Dakota Overtakes Harvard | Power Line)Harvard University’s graduates are earning less than those from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology after a decade-long commodity bull market created shortages of workers as well as minerals.
Those leaving the college of 2,300 students this year got paid a median salary of $56,700, according to PayScale Inc., which tracks employee compensation data from surveys. At Harvard, where tuition fees are almost four times higher, they got $54,100. Those scheduled to leave the campus in Rapid City, S.D., in May are already getting offers, at a time when about one in 10 recent U.S. college graduates is out of work.
