SLU alumni can most commonly be found in clinical care, the health care services industry, and the financial services industry, though they are employed throughout a wide range of sectors. The majority of SLU alumni wind up in the health care industry. SLU graduates in the telecommunications industry are hard pressed to find, with less than two percent of former students taking up work in this field. Those with an education from SLU earn an average of $63K.


SLU grads who become Senior Systems Administrators garner financial rewards beyond any other job type for this group — these alumni rake in an average about $91K annually. However, Strategic Planning Managers and Trucking and Transportation Fleet Dispatchers also rank as top-earners (bringing in around $71K and approximately $56K, respectively). Financial Analysts face rather mediocre compensation — average salaries are actually the lowest at $50K.


St. Louis, Mo. is filled with SLU grads. SLU grads also flock to Atlanta, Ga., which is home to salaries significantly above average (median pay is $88K). On the other end, SLU grads flock to New York, N.Y., which actually offers the weakest median salary of $48K. In addition, grads flock to Chicago, Ill. as well as Denver, Colo.

Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for SLU grads with a medical degree (average earnings climb to $127K per year). A Bachelor of Science in Business & Marketing commands less pay, and these degree-holders face median pay of $44K.


Former Billikens with Budget Management experience garner salaries that are 35 percent more than other grads' salaries. Around a tenth of SLU grads wind up using Microsoft Excel at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. Demonstrated ability in Microsoft Office, Financial Analysis, and Project Management rank among leading skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

A lucky minority (about two-fifths of alumni) are fortunate enough to be compensated for vacation while just one in four survey participants get sick time. A large number of alumni take advantage of a 401(k) plan. Health benefits extend to a large number of survey participants, and a fair number of alums also receive dental coverage. Saint Louis University grads are also lucky enough to receive a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Compensation averages $63K for Fordham University alumni, making their earnings most comparable to SLU grads. Loyola University-Chicago, Howard University, and Catholic University of America are also similar to SLU.
