Locations

Many Butler alumni remain in Indianapolis after graduation; close to two-fifths of grads find permanent positions in the workforce here. Another city that attracts a wealth of Butler grads is Bloomington, Ind.; given its high compensation ($89K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. Though Milwaukee, Wisc. takes the cake for lowest pay among Butler grads (the median salary is $42K there), it remains a common destination for former students. Chicago, Ill. and Carmel, Ind. also rank high on the list of cities.

Many former Butler students are familiar with Project Management, and nearly one-seventh of grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized. Also considered top-notch skills are Microsoft Excel, Financial Analysis, and Microsoft Office.

Benefits and Perks

A lucky minority (about one in three grads) are fortunate enough to be compensated for vacation while just one in five survey participants get sick time. A large number of survey participants plan for retirement by taking advantage of a company-sponsored 401(k) program. It is no small feat that most respondents are given health coverage, and a fair number of survey participants accept dental insurance. Butler University graduates also take advantage of life insurance, tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, and a company-subsidized cell phone.
