Industry

Graduates of the UR are found working in a number of different fields including the insurance and financial services industry, the consulting industry, and the health care industry. The majority of alumni accept jobs in the financial services industry. The manufacturing industry is perhaps the least commonly worked industry among UR grads, with less than five percent of former students experienced in this area. Following graduation, UR students earn an average of approximately $70K.

Gender

After graduation, women go on to earn an average of about $55K per year compared to men, who earn $88K.

Jobs

The most lucrative professionals among UR alumni are Senior Financial Analysts and Investment Analysts; they earn a median annual salary of around $77K. Marketing Directors aren't slouches either, bringing in $64K. Marketing Specialists wrap up the bottom of the pay scale, earning $43K.

Locations

Home to a large number of UR alums, Richmond, Va. is by far the most attractive city for these former students. Providence, R.I. is another hot spot for UR grads, where salaries rank at the top of the pay scale (compensation averages out to $120K). On the other hand, UR alumni who end up in Atlanta, Ga. receive the lowest median salary of $40K. New York, N.Y. and Washington, DC are also desirable cities.

Degree Major

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) will compensate UR grads at a much higher rate than other degrees — these alums rake in around $105K on average per year. The degree that warrants the lowest level of financial compensation is a B.A. in Journalism ($50K on average annually).

Skills

Competency in Sales Management translates into above-average pay for former Spiders — they earn 43 percent more than their fellow graduates. Proficiency in Project Management is common among UR alumni, and when it comes to using it on the job, one-eighth of former students report doing so. Competency in Financial Analysis, Microsoft Excel, and Marketing Communications also warrants excellent remuneration.

Benefits and Perks

Only one-third of alumni for this school enjoy paid vacation days and about one-fifth of alumni get paid sick time. A large number of respondents save for retirement through a 401(k) plan. Health coverage is awarded to most alums, and dental insurance is issued to a strong majority of alums as well.
