The most popular professional field seems to be the consulting industry. Curiously, the high SAT results reported by Truman alumni do not result in top-paid positions in the workforce — in fact, this group brings home rather low salaries. Those with a degree from Truman make an average of about $49K.


Male graduates on average earn more than female graduates; the first group banks $74K per year, but the second group takes home only approximately $36K.


The most popular destination for former Truman students is Kansas City, Mo. With a median salary of $53K, Springfield, Mo. represents the highest-paid city popular among Truman grads. On the other end, Truman grads flock to St. Louis, Mo., which actually offers the weakest median salary of $42K.

Degree Major

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) earns Truman students the most money after college (an average around $102K per year). A B.A. in Communication offers the lowest median annual financial reward ($35K).


Just under one-fifth of grads report using Microsoft Office as part of their job, making it the most popular skill. For former Bulldogs, proficiency in Adobe Photoshop warrants a paycheck that is 12 percent more than other alumni salaries. Other top skills include Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Word, and Marketing Communications.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only one in four survey participants are paid for vacation and just one-fourth of alumni for sick time. In an effort to save up for the years ahead, a strong majority of grads contribute to a 401(k). Health coverage is awarded to a strong majority of survey participants, and dental insurance is issued to a fair number of respondents as well. Truman State University grads are also lucky enough to receive a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, life insurance, and tuition reimbursement.
