Graduates of JU head into a range of vocations when it comes to work; clinical care, the transportation industry, and the marketing, advertising, and media management industry are just a few professional areas popular among alumni. The most highly represented industry among alumni is the health care industry. The manufacturing industry is perhaps the least commonly worked industry among JU grads, with less than five percent of former students experienced in this area. Median pay for those who graduated from JU amounts to $59K.


Among JU alumni, those working as Human Resources Business Partners report the highest median pay of about $80K, followed by Registered Nurses (approximately $55K). Administrative Assistants face rather mediocre compensation — average salaries are actually the lowest at $24K.


Many JU alumni remain in Jacksonville after graduation; roughly two in five grads find permanent positions in the workforce here. Cincinnati, Ohio is another hot spot for JU grads, where salaries rank at the top of the pay scale (compensation averages out to around $81K). On the other end, JU grads flock to Miami, Fla., which actually offers the weakest median salary of $52K. Nearby Tampa, Fla. and New York, N.Y. also rank high on the list of cities for JU grads.

Degree Major

Former Dolphins who fare the best in terms of salary hold a B.A. in Business Administration and earn a median salary of $115K per year. The degree that warrants the lowest level of financial compensation is a Master of Science (MS), Organizational Leadership ($38K on average annually).


Competency in People Management translates into above-average pay for former Dolphins — they earn 84 percent more than their fellow graduates. JU alumni are often well versed in Project Management, with less than ten percent of grads ending up in jobs that require this skillset. Other prime know-hows include Microsoft Office, Operations Management, and Microsoft Excel.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only one in three grads are paid for vacation and just one in three grads for sick time. Health insurance benefits extend to most graduates, and a strong majority of former students sign up for dental plans. A large number of former students opt for a 401(k) to save for retirement. Jacksonville University alumni are also on the receiving end of a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Houston Baptist University grads bring in salaries of around around $58K, making them the most similar to JU alumni in terms of earnings. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach, Charleston Southern University, and Palm Beach Atlantic University-West Palm Beach are also similar to JU.
