MAHWAH, N.J. — Students who select Ramapo College of New Jersey have an excellent chance of obtaining employment after graduation, according to Zippia.com, a website dedicated to providing job seekers with potential career resources. Ramapo was ranked Number 4 with a 92.75 percentage rating among New Jersey colleges that provide job opportunities for their students upon graduation.
“We are pleased to be recognized by Zippia.com for our work to prepare students for life beyond Ramapo College” said Christopher Romano, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs. “We know that this is an important question that students ask about their experience and this ranking reaffirms the value of liberal arts education in that it prepares students for their future regardless of the major they choose.”
Using IPEDS and College Scorecard Data, Zippia.com searched for the colleges in each state with the highest listed job placement ratings, looking specifically at employment levels at year 10 after students have graduated. The analysis was limited to the 30 public and non-profit, four-year institutions colleges in New Jersey that offer at least a bachelor’s degree.

The College Scorecard Data is provided by the U.S. Department of Education to increase public transparency on how well different schools are serving their students.
