Everyone may have a right to proper education, but in the past several decades it has turned into a bit of business, so we wanted to see which are the fastest growing private universities in the US.
These universities make millions of dollars every year, mostly from tuition fees, fees that have gone through the roof. In fact, most American students can’t attend a private University without going into debt for a few decades.
The fees are so high that most young people question whether they really need a diploma to make it out there and if it’s worth it in the long run. Education, however, is extremely important. While it’s true that many have made it in life without getting their University degree, we’re not all Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates, so the need for higher education is still there if you want a great job that pays well.

In order to create our list today, we started off by checking out a list published by the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO), regarding the 2016 endowment market value and changes from the previous year. We selected the top 100 Universities on the list and ranked them by the 2016 endowment value, handing out scores accordingly. Then, we ranked the Universities again based on the change in market value registered between 2016 and 2015 – the higher the difference, the more points they got. Last, but not least, we used a report from the United States Census Bureau regarding the school enrollment numbers for 2015.
Without further ado, here are the fastest growing private Universities in the US.
