Key Performance Indicators (KPI) is a term commonly used in the education sector for performance analysis and surveys conducted annually by an independent body on behalf of the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) to specifically measure how well Ontario colleges meet the needs of students and the market place. It measures student’s graduation rates and their respective student loan default rates.

The default rates of students enrolled in specific programs at Ontario colleges is an indirect measure of student’s employment success since unemployed students are generally likely to default in their loan repayments.

Prospective students are encouraged to inspect and compare KPIs in order to make better and informed decision about career choices, programs, employment and investment in their education
