Salary potential is also good for UD graduates.
In January, the website PayScale reported that graduates with bachelor's degrees from UD earn an average $52,700 a year early in their careers and $90,200 mid-way through their careers.
A UD-conducted survey in January of recent graduates found that 96 percent of respondents reported being employed, pursuing a graduate degree or participating in a service program within six months of graduation.
"These reports affirm the value of a University of Dayton education, which provides our students the resources, hands-on work experiences and research opportunities that set them up for this success," said Jason Eckert, director of career services. "This also is a testament to our students' hard work and achievement that result in good jobs after graduation.”
