Industry

Graduates of SLU head into a range of vocations when it comes to work; the health care services industry, the financial services industry, and clinical care are just a few professional areas popular among alumni. The health care industry registers as the most common industry among alumni. Very few SLU grads go into the physical therapist's office industry; in fact, less than two percent of alumni enter this industry. Those with a degree from SLU make an average of approximately $62K.

Jobs

SLU grads who become Chief Operating Officers are compensated well above average — these folks are top-earners among their graduating class, making an average $174K yearly. Also notably well-paid are Financial Analysts and Senior Internal Auditors; their salaries approach $70K and $67K, respectively. Senior Financial Analysts wrap up the bottom of the pay scale, earning around $58K.

Skills
