Graduates of ORU work in a variety of industries including the health care industry, the education industry, and the health care services industry. Religious service registers as the most common industry among alumni. Though ORU grads score high on the SAT, below-average pay in the workforce is common for this demographic. Those with a degree from ORU tend to make $49K.


There's a noticeable difference between the genders; where the average man hauls in around $58K after graduating from ORU, the average woman earns only $46K.


The most lucrative professionals among ORU alumni are National Sales Managers; they earn a median annual salary of $97K. Also near the top of the pay scale at about $56K are Senior Pastors and High School Teachers. Youth Pastors face rather mediocre compensation — average salaries are actually the lowest at $29K.


Tulsa is such a great city that ORU alumni tend to stick around after wrapping up their studies, with slightly less than a third of grads staying on to find permanent work.

Microsoft Office is a popular skill among ORU alumni, with nearly one in eight workers reporting using it on the job. Former Golden Eagles with Project Management abilities can expect to make 38 percent more than their former classmates ($67K). Competency in Project Management, Administration, and Leadership also warrants excellent retribution.
