The financial services industry is the sector most highly represented among alumni. Those with an education from Suffolk University earn an average of around $62K.

In addition, former Suffolk University students often head to Phoenix, Ariz. after graduating, where the median salary comes to approximately $86K in this top-paying city.

Degree Major

A Juris Doctor (JD), Master of Jurisprudence, or Master of Law (LLM) will compensate Suffolk University grads at a much higher rate than other degrees — these alums rake in $137K on average per year. A Bachelor's Degree, Business & Marketing offers the lowest median annual financial reward ($35K).

Benefits and Perks

Benefits include paid time off, but vacation days are more heavily handed out than sick days; approximately half of the alums report receiving the former, but only one-third of alumni report receiving the latter. It is no small feat that a large number of alumni are given health coverage, and a strong majority of alumni accept dental insurance. A large number of survey participants participate in a 401(k) retirement savings plan. Suffolk University graduates also take advantage of life insurance, a casual working environment, tuition reimbursement, and a company-subsidized cell phone.
