SUMMARY

Studying Data Modeling and Database Administration is not only a valuable choice, but commonly an obligatory first step for scholars desiring to begin a career as a data modeling engineer, a database administrator, or a sql database administrator. In fact, data modeling and database administration is a very rare degree coming in at the 351st most popular area of study. Last academic year, there were 203 data modeling and database administration diplomas received. In-state tuition for data modeling and database administration at private colleges is, on average, 2.2 times more costly than their public counterparts.

With just 28 universities offering data modeling and database administration there could be limited options as to the institutions that will have an option for you. If you're hoping to immerse yourself with other data modeling and database administration students, look at colleges in Michigan which have more students admitted to data modeling and database administration than any other state. More generally, the best region to major in data modeling and database administration is in the Great Lakes region with Baker College and University of Michigan-Ann Arbor best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to study data modeling and database administration is the Big Ten Conference with University of Michigan-Ann Arbor representing the conference. That said, our choice for the best school for data modeling and database administration is Northeastern University, and here you can find our comprehensive list for the best colleges.

The best school might not actually be the best school for you. There can be many more factors to consider when choosing ​university. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely alter your feelings of where to go to college. Here at Authority, we have evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which data modeling and database administration school is home to the top campus, the answer is Northeastern University. If you are very interested in which college boasts the top campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more to compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life&nbspand from that list, our pick of the university with the best student life for data modeling and database administration is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor.

If expense is a significant influence in your decision on where to go to school, you might consider avoiding Northeastern University. Northeastern University&nbspappears to be our most expensive school for data modeling and database administration, at least regarding out of state attendance. We have an entire list of the most expensive&nbspcolleges that could put the price tag at Northeastern University&nbspinto perspective. For more context, you might care to know that data modeling and database administration is the 395th most expensive program in the US, with an average bill of $9,600. On a broader scale, the most costly state for data modeling and database administration in the country is Massachusetts with costs at the main institution, Northeastern University, of $52,420. Even more broadly, the most costly region for data modeling and database administration is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for data modeling and database administration is the Southeast region which is represented by Florida Polytechnic University with a cost of $3,152. On the bright side, the most affordable school for data modeling and database administration is Florida Polytechnic University. Our comprehensive list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state students can expect to pay about $10,700 for a degree in data modeling and database administration. The cost balloons by a lot to an average of $25,200 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the school constituting the best value for data modeling and database administration: University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. On this page you can see our comprehensive list on the universities we see as being the best value&nbspoverall. With that said, this discussion is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for data modeling and database administration majors differ widely, but within two-years of finishing the degree graduates will typically earn around $77,900. There can be much variation in salary; top earners can experience pay up to $113,000. Straight out of school, the lowest earning positions within the data modeling and database administration field make $53,800, which isn't that bad. The top earning graduates from data modeling and database administration graduated from Northeastern University&nbspand if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The overall diversity of data modeling and database administration stands pretty high, ranking within the 90th percentile of all majors. The college with the most composite diversity for data modeling and database administration is University of Phoenix-Arizona&nbspand here you can find our comprehensive list of the universities with the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Data Modeling and Database Administration major only stands within the 2nd percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, ranking in the 89th percentile. White students compose the largest proportion at 50% of scholars studying data modeling and database administration. Additionally, 71% of students pursuing a data modeling and database administration degree are men.

The median ranking for data modeling and database administration professors is 4 stars, a rating which is exactly the average score across every major; this is a fine. If you are looking for the most popular data modeling and database administration professor in the country, take a look at Marina Langlois from University of California-San Diego. This might be surprising, but the best rated instructors for data modeling and database administration according to students are at University of California-San Diego. As we consider data beyond basic rankings we find that the college with the best professors for data modeling and database administration is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. You will find more detail on our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as many of the best professors nationwide.
