I would imagine with Caterpillar hiring like crazy again, Bradley engineering applicants will rise rapidly. When I was looking for a job last year, Caterpillar had 1 job in the Peoria area. A year later, they now have 95 jobs in the Peoria area lol.

Mgmt job opportunities at Cat will continue to improve, not only in Peoria, but throughout the US Cat Facilities, as older employees continue to retire and the business recovers globally. Acquisitions will also help raise employment opportunities as well.

If the Fed Gov ever gets serious about expanding/improving the US infastructure, developing high speed rail operations, new pipelines, new nuclear power capability, natural gas/oil/shale oil/coal to oil projects, developing additional water resources, look for more opportunities at Cat and additional cooperation between BU and Big Yellow...

Bradley still rates well in the 2015 edition of the Forbes rankings...
however Bradley has fallen off a bit...

in 2013 Bradley was ranked #248 nationally with a "Financial Rating" of "B" - but now it's #278 with "B-"

Bradley again gets noted among top ranking universities...

This time - a study of how HIGH of earnings Illinois' college graduates earn!!

"Graduates of Illinois' private universities earn more than public counterparts"

"Six of the ten top universities in Illinois are private schools, largely because graduates earn so much more.

..The list is dominated by private schools ....Illinois Institute of Technology, Wesleyan University, Wheaton College....and Bradley University."

“People who attend these private institutions tend to make $20,000 to $30,000 more 10 years out than those attending public institutions...
..the rule of "you get what you pay for" is generally true with Illinois schools, but some, like Bradley University, offer good value because
“they’re really middle of the board in terms of financing but have really great career outcomes.”


btw- ISU doesn't even make the list!!

well, here's another similar ranking from a completely different source (altho a little older), but the numbers are almost exactly the same up and down the line
