The most popular career sector among alumni is the financial services industry.


Chief Financial Officers win the contest for best-paid Brooklyn College alumni, making around $128K on average every year, though VPs of Operations ($113K), and Elementary School Teachers ($73K) are not far behind. Collecting the smallest paychecks are Human Resources Coordinators — they bring in $43K.


Many Brooklyn College grads flock to New York, N.Y. It is no surprise that Woodcliff Lake, N.J., which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is $106K), is another of the most popular spots for former Brooklyn College students. Home to the lowest median salary for Brooklyn College alumni is Washington, DC, a popular place for former students despite its $34K average paycheck. Charlotte, N.C. and Atlanta, Ga. also rank high on the list of cities.

Degree Major

Brooklyn College students with a B.A. in Political Science (PolySci) can expect to make the most money (approximately $127K on average per year) compared to their fellow graduates. The degree that warrants the lowest level of financial compensation is a Master of Education (MEd), Elementary Education ($34K on average annually).


One in eight Brooklyn College grads wind up using Microsoft Office at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. Knowledge of C++ seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are nearly double their former classmates' salaries (around $108K). Also considered top-notch skills are Customer Service, Microsoft Excel, and Project Management.

Benefits and Perks

A lucky minority (about one-third of alumni) are fortunate enough to be compensated for vacation while just one-fourth of alumni get sick time. Health coverage is awarded to a strong majority of respondents, and dental insurance is issued to the larger part of alumni as well. A strong majority of survey participants save for retirement through a 401(k) plan. Brooklyn College alumni are rewarded with additional benefits, such as a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and flexible hours.
