Graduates of SJU head into a range of vocations when it comes to work; the financial services industry, the insurance and financial services industry, and the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry are just a few professional areas popular among alumni. The most highly represented industry among alumni is the health care industry. Those with a degree from SJU tend to make $64K.


SJU grads who become Information Technology Directors are compensated well above average — these folks are top-earners among their graduating class, usually making $160K yearly. Also notably well-paid are Senior Financial Analysts and Financial Analysts; their salaries approach approximately $62K and about $48K, respectively. Account Managers pick up $40K in financial rewards, representing the lowest-paid position among alumni.

Princeton is also a common destination for SJU grads and offers the best pay with a median salary of around $76K. Though Exton takes the cake for lowest pay among SJU grads (the median salary is $50K there), it remains a common destination for former students.
