Manhattan alumni can most commonly be found in the civil engineering services industry, the financial services industry, and the engineering services industry, though they are employed throughout a wide range of sectors. The most highly represented industry among alumni is the consulting industry. Reminiscent of their reportedly high performance on the SAT, Manhattan alumni often collect high salaries as well. Median pay for those who graduated from Manhattan amounts to $79K.


A gender wage gap becomes apparent after college, with female graduates earning only $68K on average compared to $92K for male graduates.


The most generous salaries among Manhattan alumni are reportedly earned by Chief Financial Officers, whose median earnings come to about $200K, followed by Maintenance Managers (approximately $111K) and Program Project Managers (around $96K). Salaries are anything but generous for Civil Engineers, whose earnings rank lowest on the pay scale at $61K.


Many Manhattan grads end up living in New York, N.Y., deeming it the most popular city for former students of this school. It is no surprise that Boston, Mass., which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is $220K), is another of the most popular spots for former Manhattan students. On the other end, Manhattan grads flock to White Plains, N.Y., which actually offers the weakest median salary of $64K. Alumni express interest in Lodi, Calif. and Albany, N.Y. as well.

Degree Major

Among the highest-paid Manhattan alumni are those with a Juris Doctor (JD), Law — they earn close to about $157K on average per year. Ranking last in the compensation department are those holding a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (CE) — their annual income amounts to $59K on average.


Many former Manhattan students are familiar with Project Management, and one-fourth of grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized. Knowledge of Accounting seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 48 percent more than their former classmates' salaries (around $118K). Experience with Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Office, and Engineering Design is highly valued as well.

Benefits and Perks

Though more than half of alumni get paid time off for vacation, only one in three grads receive paid sick leave. Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; most alums are rewarded with health insurance and a fair number of alums report dental coverage, too. Most survey participants report contributing to a 401(k). Other benefits awarded to Manhattan College alumni include life insurance, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.
