Former GS students are professionally suited for a wide range of fields including the health care industry, the banking industry, and the construction industry. The majority of GS alumni wind up in the education industry. The average starting salary for a graduate of GS is $51K.


There is a sizable difference between men's post-college salaries and women's: the median for the former is $60K, but the median for the latter is only $45K.


The GS alumni who make the most are Project Engineers; they report a median pay of approximately $73K. Credit Analysts and Construction Superintendents draw in a fair amount as well — around $67K and $60K, respectively. Relative to other positions, compensation dwindles for Financial Analysts; alumni in this role face average salaries of about $44K.


Many GS grads end up living in Atlanta, Ga., deeming it the most popular city for former students of this school. It is also not uncommon to find former GS students living and working in Charlotte, N.C. — this top-paying city is a popular destination with a median salary of $60K. Home to the lowest median salary for GS alumni is Brunswick, Ga., a popular place for former students despite its approximately $35K average paycheck. GS alumni express interest in nearby Savannah, Ga. and Statesboro, Ga. as well.

Degree Major

GS students with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management can expect to make the most money ($119K on average per year) compared to their fellow graduates. Those with a Bachelor's Degree, Business Management face salaries on the lower end, coming in at an average about $33K per year.


Proficiency in Microsoft Excel is common among GS alumni, and when it comes to using it on the job, nearly one in eight former students report doing so. Knowledge of Financial Analysis seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 38 percent more than their former classmates' salaries ($70K). Other prime know-hows include Project Management, Microsoft Office, and Financial Analysis.

Benefits and Perks

Only two-fifths of alumni earn paid vacation and just one in three grads get paid sick time. A large number of grads set aside retirement funds in an employer-sponsored 401(k). Health insurance benefits extend to a large number of graduates, and a strong majority of grads sign up for dental plans. Georgia Southern University graduates also take advantage of life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, a casual working environment, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Alumni of Texas a & M University pick up average paychecks of around $51K, which is closest to the amount made by GS grads among similar schools. Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and the University of West Florida are also similar to GS.
