Graduates of MSU are found working in a number of different fields including the long-term care or rehabilitation facility industry, the manufacturing industry, and the veterinary care industry. A large chunk of former MSU students are employed in public K-12 education; in fact, this is the most popular job sector for this population. For MSU alumni — a demographic with impressive SAT scores — salaries actually come in on the lower end. Following graduation, MSU students earn an average of $46K.


After graduation, women go on to earn an average of about $39K per year compared to men, who earn $72K.

Degree Major

MSU students with a Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc) can expect to make the most money (around $60K on average per year) compared to their fellow graduates. Graduates holding a Bachelor's Degree fare the worst in terms of compensation with an average yearly salary of $51K.


MSU grads are usually competent in Project Management, and somewhere between a fifth and a fourth of alumni continue practicing this skill in their career.

Experience with Microsoft Office, Microsoft Excel, and Budget Management is highly valued as well.
