Degree Major

Former Chanticleers who fare the best in terms of salary hold a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and earn a median salary of $73K per year. The degree that warrants the lowest level of financial compensation is a Bachelor's Degree (approximately $57K on average annually).


Nearly one-fourth of CCU grads wind up using Customer Service at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni.

A large number of respondents have medical plans, and roughly half of the alumni have dental insurance. Most alums report contributing to a 401(k).
