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.

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

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).


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.
