Peer Comparison Report 

Every two years, a peer comparison report compares Berklee to a selected group of peer schools on a variety of the most recent data publically available from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) data center. Comparisons are made to institutions with a similar focus on music and/or art education. The peer comparison report benchmarks Berklee to peer schools using concrete data points on enrollment, retention and graduation, admissions and selectivity, faculty, endowment, tuition, and financial aid.
