Post-Graduation Success

The majority of BU graduates find their path within six months of graduation. Despite ongoing labor market concerns, 94% of the Class of 2021 were settled by the end of the year, with 60% in full-time employment and 28% in graduate or professional school.

The average starting salary for BU graduates is above the national average for new college graduates. Those who incorporate experiential learning (internships, practica, or the like) into their BU experience are both more likely to secure full-time employment and to earn a higher starting salary.
