Clinical care, the marketing, advertising, and media management industry, and the health care services industry are just a few of the areas in which JU grads find work. The majority of JU alumni wind up in the health care industry. Former JU students are not known for their interest in the transportation industry; less than five percent of them advance into this area for work. Former JU graduates tend to bring in approximately $60K.


JU grads who become Human Resources Business Partners garner financial rewards beyond any other job type for this group — these alumni rake in $80K annually. However, Outside Sales Representatives and Registered Nurses also rank as top-earners (bringing in $63K and $58K, respectively). Administrative Assistants wrap up the bottom of the pay scale, earning around $24K.


JU alumni seldom move away from Jacksonville after college; in fact, roughly two-fifths of former students find lasting work in the city they adore. Another city that attracts a wealth of JU grads is Dallas; given its high compensation ($95K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. For comparison, the lowest-paying city popular with JU alumni is Knoxville, which offers median salaries of about $35K. Nearby Tampa and Cincinnati also rank high on the list of cities for JU grads.

Degree Major

A B.A. in Business Administration leads to the highest pay for JU grads ($115K per year). Graduates holding a Master of Science (MS), Organizational Leadership fare the worst in terms of compensation with yearly salaries of $38K.


For former Dolphins, proficiency in Network Management / Administration warrants a paycheck that is nearly double other alumni salaries. Microsoft Office is a popular skill among JU alumni, with close to one-tenth of workers reporting using it on the job. Experience with Project Management, Operations Management, and Microsoft Excel is highly valued as well.

Benefits and Perks

Lacking in the benefits department, just one in three grads report compensation for sick days and only one in three grads get vacation time. It is no small feat that most respondents are given health coverage, and a fair portion of former students accept dental insurance. A fair portion of graduates allocate some part of their earnings to a company-sponsored 401(k) savings plan. Additional perks enjoyed by Jacksonville University grads include life insurance, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Trinity University graduates, who earn approximately $61K on average, make a similar amount to JU grads. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach, Charleston Southern University, and Palm Beach Atlantic University-West Palm Beach are also similar to JU.
