Graduates of SUNY Maritime College are found working in a number of different fields including the shipping, transportation, warehousing, or logistics industry, the water transportation or shipping industry, and the engineering services industry. The most popular career sector among alumni is the construction industry. The least popular industry for former SUNY Maritime College students is the science and engineering services industry — less than five percent of these people end up working in this field. SUNY Maritime College graduates often advance into high-paying positions, which is somewhat expected given their above-average SAT scores. Former SUNY Maritime College graduates tend to bring in $76K.


Proportionally speaking, (the school has a 3 to 1 male-to-female ratio), the school lends itself to more male graduates. Male graduates do tend to earn more than female graduates; the first group banks approximately $93K per year, but the second group takes home only $62K.


The most generous salaries among SUNY Maritime College alumni are reportedly earned by Environmental Health & Safety Directors, whose earnings come to $100K, followed by Marine Engineers (about $89K) and Sourcing Associates (around $67K). Sitting at the bottom of the pay scale are Sales Support Supervisors, making an average of $40K.


The most popular destination for former SUNY Maritime College students is New York. Another city that attracts a wealth of SUNY Maritime College grads is Washington, DC; given its high compensation ($130K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. Home to the lowest median salary for SUNY Maritime College alumni is White Plains, a popular place for former students despite its $40K average paycheck. Baltimore is also a top pick, as is Houston.

Degree Major

A graduate with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from SUNY Maritime College can rake in a whopping $130K per year, more than any other degree from this school. Annual salaries for those with a Bachelor's Degree, International Trade & Business are the lowest of the pack, earning about $40K.


About a fourth of SUNY Maritime College grads wind up using Project Management at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. SUNY Maritime College grads who have experience with People Management can expect to make 53 percent more than other alumni ($116K on average). Also considered top-notch skills are Engineering Design, Microsoft Office, and Operations Management.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only two-fifths of alumni are paid for vacation and just one in five survey participants for sick time. It is no small feat that nearly all survey participants are given health coverage, and the greater part of respondents accept dental insurance. Nearly all alums save for retirement through a 401(k) plan. SUNY Maritime College alumni are rewarded with additional benefits, such as life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, tuition reimbursement, and a casual working environment.

Related Schools
