Industry

HBU graduates see an average starting salary of $72K.

Locations

Many HBU alumni seem to stick around Houston after wrapping up their studies; a strong majority of grads remain to find permanent work.

Degree Major

A B.A. in Bachelor of Arts (BA) will compensate HBU grads at a much higher rate than other degrees — these alums rake in approximately $137K on average per year. A Bachelor's Degree is less advantageous in terms of earnings; alums with this degree are the lowest earners with a median annual pay of $53K.

Skills

Former Huskies with Regulatory Compliance experience garner salaries that are 132 percent more than other grads' salaries. Just under one in three grads report using Project Management as part of their job, making it the most popular skill.

Benefits and Perks

A number of grads are rewarded with paid time off, and roughly half of the alumni report compensation for sick days and vacation time. A fair number of alums have medical plans, and the larger part of graduates have dental insurance. A fair number of former students participate in a 401(k) retirement savings plan. Additional perks enjoyed by Houston Baptist University grads include tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, and life insurance.

Related Schools

Alumni of Trinity University pick up average paychecks of about $73K, which is closest to the amount made by HBU grads among similar schools. Other schools similar to HBU include Hardin-Simmons University, Samford University, and Jacksonville University.
