Peer comparisons provide Berklee with information about similar institutions for the use of benchmarking, goal setting, trend analysis, and informed decision making. The institutions listed below have been identified as peers based on their curricular focus, relative size, geographic location, and enrollment competition. Peer institutions may vary depending on the topic of comparison and the availability of comparable data. The institutions listed below can be used in whole or in part for peer comparison purposes. Where appropriate, departments may use additional peer schools that are more reflective of their specific programs and services.
If you have questions about peer group selection or comparison, please contact the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment.
