Graduates of Capital University are found working in a number of different fields including the insurance and financial services industry, the banking industry, and the manufacturing industry. A large chunk of former Capital University students are employed in clinical care; in fact, this is the most popular job sector for this population. Following graduation, Capital University students earn an average of $57K.


A gender wage gap becomes apparent after college, with female graduates earning only $55K on average compared to about $67K for male graduates.


The Capital University alumni who make the most are General Counsels; they report a median pay of around $160K. VPs of Operations and Senior Buyers draw in a fair amount as well — $125K and $75K, respectively. Relative to other positions, compensation dwindles for BSW Social Workers; alumni in this role face average salaries of approximately $31K.


Though Columbus, Ohio offers the least in terms of financial rewards (median pay is the lowest at $50K), the greater part of Capital University students continue living here after college. On the opposite end of the pay scale is Cleveland, Ohio, a top-paying city for Capital University grads looking to earn a larger-than-average sum (this city has a median pay of about $100K).

Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for Capital University grads with a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) (average earnings climb to $320K per year). Those with a bachelor's degree in social work face salaries on the lower end, coming in at an average around $36K per year.


Capital University grads are usually competent in Microsoft Excel, and around one in ten alumni continue practicing this skill in their career. Knowledge of Operations Management seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 77 percent more than their former classmates' salaries ($100K). Proficiency in Microsoft Office, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Customer Service command top-of-the-line rewards as well.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to paid time off, there is more lenience involving vacation than illness; nearly half of the alumni get vacation time, whereas just one in three grads get paid sick leave. A large number of alums opt for a 401(k) to save for retirement. Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; a large number of grads are rewarded with health insurance and a fair number of alumni report dental coverage, too. Other benefits that Capital University alumni receive are life insurance, flexible hours, tuition reimbursement, and a company-subsidized cell phone.
