Graduates of Manhattan head into a range of vocations when it comes to work; the civil engineering services industry, the engineering services industry, and the financial services industry are just a few professional areas popular among alumni. The most popular field is the consulting industry. Manhattan graduates often advance into high-paying positions, which is somewhat expected given their above-average SAT scores. Starting salaries of $78K are the median among Manhattan grads.


After college, a notable gender gap appears: the average female graduate makes $67K where the average male graduate hauls home $92K.


Former Manhattan students with an interest in making money consider becoming Chief Financial Officers, the highest-paying gig (average earnings amount to about $200K) among this alumni group. Other well-paid jobs include Maintenance Managers (around $111K) and Mechanical Engineers (approximately $79K). Civil Engineers face rather mediocre compensation — average salaries are actually the lowest at $61K.


New York, N.Y. is filled with Manhattan grads. 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 hand, Manhattan alumni who end up in Durham, N.H. receive the lowest median salary of approximately $62K. Nearby White Plains, N.Y. and Lodi, Calif. also rank high on the list of cities for Manhattan grads.

Degree Major

With a median annual earnings of around $157K per year, former Jaspers who have a Juris Doctor (JD), Law are the best paid among the alumni population. A B.A. in International Relations offers the lowest median annual financial reward ($45K).


Former Jaspers with Accounting abilities can expect to make 50 percent more than their former classmates (about $118K). Project Management is a popular skill among Manhattan alumni, with around one in four grads reporting using it on the job. Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Office, and Engineering Design are among other dominant skills.

Benefits and Perks

Though slightly more than half of the graduates get paid time off for vacation, only one in three grads receive paid sick leave. A large number of graduates participate in a 401(k) program. It is no small feat that a large number of alumni are given health coverage, and a fair number of alumni accept dental insurance. Other benefits that Manhattan College alumni receive are life insurance, a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.
