Graduates of JU go into clinical care, the marketing, advertising, and media management industry, and the manufacturing industry, not to mention a variety of other lines of work. The most popular career sector among alumni is the health care industry. The least popular industry for former JU students is the home health care industry — less than five percent of these people end up working in this field. Graduates of JU typically earn around $60K.


Human Resources Business Partners win the contest for best-paid JU alumni, typically making $80K every year, though Outside Sales Representatives ($63K), and Registered Nurses (approximately $58K) are not far behind. Salaries are anything but generous for Administrative Assistants, where earnings rank lowest on the pay scale at about $24K.


JU alumni seldom move away from Jacksonville after college; in fact, roughly two in five former students find lasting work in the city they adore. Another city that attracts a wealth of JU grads is Cincinnati; given its high compensation ($81K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. Home to the lowest median salary for JU alumni is Knoxville, a popular place for former students despite its $35K average paycheck. Other popular cities for JU alumni include nearby Miami and Tampa.

Degree Major

A B.A. in Business Administration earns JU students the most money after college ($115K per year). Those holding a Master of Science (MS), Organizational Leadership are less fortunate in terms of earnings, bringing in approximately $38K per year.


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 nearly one in ten workers reporting using it on the job. Project Management, Operations Management, and Microsoft Excel are desirable skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

Only one in three grads for this school enjoy paid vacation days and about one in four survey participants get paid sick time. Most grads save for retirement through a 401(k) plan. Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; a fair portion of graduates are rewarded with health insurance and a fair portion of grads report dental coverage, too. Additional perks enjoyed by Jacksonville University grads include life insurance, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Among alumni of similar schools, Houston Baptist University grads (who make an average of $61K) earn salaries most similar to JU alumni. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Daytona Beach, Charleston Southern University, and Palm Beach Atlantic University-West Palm Beach are also similar to JU.
