Infamous for its meager salaries (average pay is the lowest at $51K), over a third of FAMU students still call Tallahassee, Fla. their home after graduation. FAMU alumni in search of the largest paycheck, on the other hand, will find it in Atlanta, Ga. where $71K is the average pay.

Degree Major

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) leads to the highest pay for FAMU grads ($89K on average per year). Those with a Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc) face salaries on the lower end, coming in at an average $58K per year.


Proficiency in Customer Service is common among FAMU alumni, and when it comes to using it on the job, just under a third of former students report doing so. Competency in Project Management translates into above-average pay for former Rattlers — they earn 64 percent more than their fellow graduates. In addition, those who are savvy in Project Management, Microsoft Office, and Office Administration are also considered highly skilled.

A large number of grads enjoy both paid vacation and paid sick time. In an effort to save up for the years ahead, the larger part of respondents contribute to a 401(k). Health insurance benefits extend to the larger part of graduates, and more than half of alumni sign up for dental plans.
