Success After Graduation
The faculty and staff of UE's Schroeder School of Business don't just focus on preparing you for your first job after college; we're focused on preparing you for your best job.
In the Schroeder School of Business, our commitment goes beyond giving our students the skills to succeed in business; our faculty and staff also are committed to working alongside our students to find the right opportunities for success. The result?
In recent years, 98 percent of Schroeder School of Business graduates have been employed within six months of graduation.
$51,000 mean salary for our 2015 Schroeder School of Business graduating class.
100 percent of Schroeder School of Business students complete a professional internship.
Students in each of our majors have the opportunity to work with their faculty advisors to learn about the professional expectations of their specific disciplines, with UE's alumni office to pair with an alumni mentor in their area of interest, and with our corporate partners in the community who offer programs for UE students.
