Note: (1) Graduates reporting being both employed AND attending graduate school/pursuing further education were counted once and categorized based on their (supposed) primary activity. (2) Multiple methods were used to collect graduates’ career outcomes data: exit surveys, alumni follow-up survey, and LinkedIn profile search. Data were collected at two points of time: near graduation (mid-April to early May), and then about 10-11 months after graduation. Many students accepted a job offer upon graduation, and the overwhelming majority of the remaining individuals planning to work found employment within six months after graduation. (3) The participation rate/knowledge rate (e.g., percent of the class whose career information was available at the time of the study) for the 2015--2022 Graduating Classes was 94%, 95%, 93%, 96%, 93%, 79% (2020 graduating class, pandemic year), 78%, and 77%, respectively.
