Belmont alumni can most commonly be found in IT services, the software development industry, and the education industry, though they are employed throughout a wide range of sectors. The majority of Belmont alumni wind up in the health care industry. Very few Belmont grads go into the arts, entertainment, and recreation industry; in fact, less than two percent of alumni enter this industry. The average salary for a grad from Belmont is $52K.


Senior Financial Analysts win the contest for best-paid Belmont alumni, making $76K on average every year, though Attorneys (approximately $57K), and Marketing Managers (around $50K) are not far behind. Relative to other positions, compensation dwindles for Marketing Coordinators; alumni in this role face average salaries of about $31K.


Many Belmont alumni remain in Nashville after graduation; approximately one-half of grads find permanent positions in the workforce here. Dallas, Texas is also a common destination for Belmont grads and offers the best pay with a median salary of $93K. The city with the lowest median paycheck frequented by Belmont alumni is Los Angeles, Calif., where earnings average $46K. Graduates of Belmont also relocate to Franklin, Tenn., which is not far away, and New York, N.Y.

Degree Major

With a median annual earnings of around $102K per year, former Bruins who have a Bachelor of Science in Biology are the best paid among the alumni population. A Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Music Business is less advantageous in terms of earnings; alums with this degree are the lowest earners with a median annual pay of $31K.


For former Bruins, proficiency in Accounting warrants a paycheck that is 51 percent more than other alumni salaries. Proficiency in Marketing Communications is common among Belmont alumni, and when it comes to using it on the job, close to one-tenth of former students report doing so. Also considered top-notch skills are Microsoft Office, Microsoft Excel, and Project Management.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only two-fifths of alumni are paid for vacation and just one-fifth of alumni for sick time. It is no small feat that a large number of grads are given health coverage, and more than half of alums accept dental insurance. Most former students participate in a 401(k) retirement savings plan. Belmont University alumni are rewarded with additional benefits, such as a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and free drinks.

Related Schools

Alumni of Lindenwood University pick up average paychecks of $50K, which is closest to the amount made by Belmont grads among similar schools. Lincoln Memorial University, Bellarmine University, and Brenau University are also similar to Belmont.
