Pace alumni belong to a wide range of sectors. A few fields in which grads tend to find work include the education industry, IT services, and the banking industry. The financial services industry registers as the most common industry among alumni. The marketing, advertising, and media management industry is perhaps the least commonly worked industry among Pace grads, with less than five percent of former students experienced in this area. Pace graduates often advance into high-paying positions, which is somewhat expected given their above-average SAT scores. Median pay for those who graduated from Pace amounts to about $84K.


In the Pace alumni community, men make a median salary of $88K compared to their female counterparts, who earn approximately $71K.


Pace grads who become VPs of Human Resources garner financial rewards beyond any other job type for this group — these alumni rake in an average around $169K annually. However, Attorneys and VPs of Operations also rank as top-earners (bringing in $131K and $125K, respectively). Sitting at the bottom of the pay scale are Marketing Coordinators who make an average of $40K.


Pace students enjoy their time in New York, and roughly one-half of students actually choose to live and work there after graduating. Jersey City, N.J. is also a common destination for Pace grads and offers the best pay with a median salary of $125K. On the other end, Pace grads flock to Weehawken, N.J., which actually offers the weakest median salary of $45K.
