The health care industry is the sector most highly represented among alumni. The average salary for a grad from Butler is $57K.


After college, a notable gender gap appears: the average female graduate makes $47K where the average male graduate hauls home around $90K.


Infamous for its meager salaries (average pay is the lowest at about $49K), around half of Butler students still call Indianapolis, Ind. their home after graduation. On the flipside, Butler grads seeking above-average pay can find soaring salaries in Houston, Texas where median pay is $95K.

Degree Major

Among the highest-paid Butler alumni are those with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) — they earn close to approximately $76K on average per year. On the other end of the spectrum, those with a Bachelor of Science in Business & Marketing tend to do the worst in terms of salary, making an average $35K per year.


Former Bulldogs with Energy Conservation & Efficiency abilities can expect to make 32 percent more than their former classmates ($75K). Butler grads are usually competent in Project Management, and just under a fifth of alumni continue practicing this skill in their career. Other prime know-hows include Team Leadership, Energy Conservation & Efficiency, and Data Analysis.

Benefits and Perks

Although more than half of alumni are compensated for vacation days, only one-third of alumni are paid for sick time. It is no small feat that most alums are given health coverage, and most grads accept dental insurance. A large number of grads participate in a 401(k) retirement savings plan. Other benefits that Butler University alumni receive are a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.
