Graduates of Pace go into IT services, the retail industry, and the health care industry, not to mention a variety of other lines of work. The financial services industry is the sector most highly represented among alumni. The health care information technology (it) services industry is perhaps the least commonly worked industry among Pace grads, with less than five percent of former students experienced in this area.

Collecting the smallest paychecks are Administrative Assistants — they bring in $49K.


Infamous for its meager salaries (average pay is the lowest at around $71K), slightly more than half of Pace students still call New York, N.Y. their home after graduation.

Most survey participants set up a 401(k) to save for retirement. It is no small feat that a large number of graduates are given health coverage, and a fair number of grads accept dental insurance.
