Software as a service (SAAS) development registers as the most common industry among alumni. Those with an education from Butler earn an average of $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), about one-half of Butler students still call Indianapolis, Ind. their home after graduation. Alternatively, Houston, Texas is home to some of the highest salaries — median pay is $95K — which is an (obvious) draw for many Butler grads.

Degree Major

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) leads to the highest pay for Butler grads (approximately $76K on average per year). A Bachelor of Science in Business & Marketing offers the lowest median annual financial reward ($35K).


Butler grads are usually competent in Project Management, and a little less than one-fifth of alumni continue practicing this skill in their career. Former Bulldogs with Energy Conservation & Efficiency abilities can expect to make 32 percent more than their former classmates ($75K). Demonstrated ability in Budget Management, Energy Conservation & Efficiency, and Data Analysis rank among leading skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

Although more than half of former students are compensated for vacation days, only one-third of alumni are paid for sick time. It is no small feat that a large number of graduates are given health coverage, and most former students accept dental insurance. Most respondents allocate some part of their earnings to a company-sponsored 401(k) savings plan. Other benefits awarded to Butler University alumni include life insurance, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and flexible hours.
