Graduates of Belmont work in a variety of industries including IT services, the education industry, and the software development industry. A large chunk of former Belmont students are employed in the health care industry; in fact, this is the most popular job sector for this population. The retail industry is not a popular industry for Belmont grads, and less than two percent of them wind up in the field. Following graduation, Belmont students earn an average of $51K.


Belmont grads who become Senior Accountants are compensated well above average — these folks are top-earners among their graduating class, usually making around $56K yearly. Also notably well-paid are Marketing Managers and Graphic Designers; their salaries approach about $51K and $44K, respectively. Relative to other positions, compensation dwindles for Marketing Coordinators; alumni in this role face average salaries of $31K.


Belmont alumni love Nashville so much that they tend to stick around after graduation, with close to one-half of grads staying on to find permanent employment. It is no surprise that Dallas, which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is approximately $93K), is another of the most popular spots for former Belmont students. On the flipside, the lowest-paying city popular among Belmont grads is Los Angeles (median compensation is $46K). In addition, Belmont grads flock to neighboring Franklin as well as Brentwood.

Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for Belmont grads with a Bachelor of Science in Biology (earnings climb to about $102K per year). A Bachelor of Science in Public Relations (PR) commands less pay, and these degree-holders face salaries of approximately $35K.


Many former Belmont students are familiar with Microsoft Excel, and roughly one in ten grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized. Knowledge of Operations Management seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 71 percent more than their former classmates' salaries ($87K). Demonstrated ability in Microsoft Office, Marketing Communications, and Project Management rank among leading skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

Lacking in the benefits department, just two-fifths of alumni report compensation for sick days and only one-fifth of alumni get vacation time. A fair portion of alumni receive health insurance, and a majority of graduates get dental coverage. Most survey participants plan for retirement by taking advantage of a company-sponsored 401(k) program. Additional perks enjoyed by Belmont University grads include a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and free drinks.

Related Schools

Compensation averages $51K for Lindenwood University alumni, making their earnings most comparable to Belmont grads. Other schools similar to Belmont include Lincoln Memorial University, Bellarmine University, and Brenau University.
