Purdue University Spending $140+ Million on Advertising? 

Paxton Riter, Co-Founder and CEO at iDesign, shared an interesting post on LinkedIn recently, outlining the ten universities spending the most on advertising.

According to this, Purdue University spent more than $140 million on advertising in 2022-23. The graphic does not say, but it’s likely that most of that was actually for Purdue Global, the university’s independent online cousin. 

Also interesting that most schools in this top 10 are online and several are for-profit providers. Together, that’s more than half a billion in ad spending in one year.
