Men with an associate’s degree earn nearly as much as women with a bachelor’s degree

Women are listening to the messages society sends about what it takes to be successful in the job market. Unfortunately, it’s not totally working.

Though women are more likely to go to college and earn degrees than men, they don’t reap as large of a benefit from their education, according to an analysis published Tuesday by Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce. Instead, women typically need one more degree to earn as much as men on average.

For example, a woman with a bachelor’s degree earns $61,000 a year on average and a man with an associate’s degree earns roughly the same — $59,000 a year on average, the study found.
