Industry

A far departure from high-scoring SAT results, FAMU alumni report earning only moderate salaries after graduating. Those with a degree from FAMU make an average of approximately $49K.

Locations

Though Tallahassee, Fla. offers the least in terms of financial rewards (median pay is the lowest at $51K), over a third of FAMU students continue living here after college. Atlanta, Ga. is on the other end of the salary spectrum, offering top-notch pay and a median salary of about $71K; it's no wonder that FAMU grads are attracted to this city.

Degree Major

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) will compensate FAMU grads at a much higher rate than other degrees — these alums rake in $89K on average per year. A Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc) offers the lowest median annual financial reward (around $58K).

Skills

Competency in Project Management translates into above-average pay for former Rattlers — they earn 64 percent more than their fellow graduates. Slightly less than a third of FAMU grads wind up using Customer Service at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. Office Administration, Project Management, and Microsoft Office are among other dominant skills.

Benefits and Perks

Perks, including paid vacation and sick time, are awarded to most survey participants. More than half of graduates plan for retirement by taking advantage of a company-sponsored 401(k) program. Health coverage is awarded to the larger part of respondents, and dental insurance is issued to more than half of alums as well. Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University grads are also lucky enough to receive tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and life insurance.

Related Schools

Texas a & M University grads bring in salaries of around $51K, making them the most similar to FAMU alumni in terms of earnings. Other schools similar to FAMU include the University of West Florida, Georgia Southern University, and Lamar University.
