Who We Are

GradSchoolHub is a comprehensive resource that is primarily geared toward current and prospective graduate students. The free guides on this site cover important topics such as popular degrees and concentrations, coursework expectations, scholarships and other financial aid opportunities, and jobs for recent graduates.

We place great value on editorial independence and transparency. Each resource on GradSchoolHub contains verified, data-driven content curated by our writers and fact-finders. Our goal is to help each student choose schools and degrees based on their career goals, geographic location, financial situation, and other individual factors.

How Our Site Makes Money

GradSchoolHub generates revenue by advertising specific programs on behalf of colleges and universities. These schools provide us with financial compensation in exchange for student referrals.

We may receive compensation when site visitors select certain schools using our searchable program database, or if they interact with ads labeled as “ad” or “advertising disclosure” on GradSchoolHub.

In an effort to be as transparent as possible, we distinguish between editorial content and advertisements. The ads for which we receive compensation are clearly identified as “ad” or “advertising disclosure.” Advertisements and compensation never influence our editorial content.

We Value Editorial Integrity

Our rankings and lists are based on a proprietary methodology for evaluating schools, departments, and degrees. This system ensures our choices are unbiased and not influenced by advertising content.

We also rely on data sources such as the National Center for Education Statistics, the Common Data Set Initiative, and Peterson’s. These sources and others are recognized for providing accurate, up-to-date information about education and employment in the United States.

Lastly, we incorporate unique data from online surveys and interviews. We use this content because it brings real-world experience that students value when choosing schools or programs. We also follow the guidelines listed below to ensure impartiality and editorial independence:

  • We never rank any schools or programs on GradSchoolHub based on any type of advertising agreements or financial relationship with any partner school, period.
  • Schools do not receive preferential treatment. Every institution is evaluated using the same criteria and assigned a score that reflects our proprietary ranking methodology, which incorporates variables such as admission and retention rates, tuition costs, financial aid availability, and student resources.
  • Every school in our rankings has earned either national or regional accreditation. This measure ensures higher levels of quality assurance and transparency for our evaluations.
  • We are committed to complete editorial integrity. As a result, we frequently evaluate our content and ranking methodology to ensure each guide is unbiased, accurate, and up to date. Our experts, writers, and editors all adhere to strict editorial standards to ensure factual, responsible content throughout GradSchoolHub.
