Professionally, the financial services industry, the consulting industry, and the education industry are popular business areas among the UR alumni. A large chunk of former UR students are employed in law; in fact, this is the most popular job sector for this population. Starting salaries of $67K are common among UR grads.


In the UR alumni community, men make a median salary of $78K compared to their female counterparts, who earn about $58K.


Executive Directors win the contest for best-paid UR alumni, typically making $120K every year, though Investment Analysts ($85K), and Associate Attorneys (approximately $78K) are not far behind. Sitting at the bottom of the pay scale are Attorneys, making an average of around $68K.


Richmond is filled with UR grads. It is no surprise that New York, which hands out the biggest paychecks (the average salary is about $67K), is another of the most popular spots for former UR students. On the flipside, the lowest-paying city popular among UR grads is Roanoke (median compensation is $33K). Graduates also relocate to Washington, DC and Atlanta.

Degree Major

A graduate with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from UR can rake in a whopping around $112K per year, more than any other degree from this school. On the other end of the spectrum, those with a B.A. in Global & International Studies tend to do the worst in terms of salary, making $39K per year.


Many UR grads have knowledge of Project Management, with roughly one in eight alumni using this program on the clock. Former Spiders with Strategic Planning abilities can expect to make 51 percent more than their former classmates (approximately $102K). Competency in Data Analysis, Microsoft Excel, and Strategic Planning also warrants excellent retribution.

Benefits and Perks

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only two-fifths of alumni are paid for vacation and just one in three grads for sick time. A strong majority of respondents receive health insurance, and a fair portion of alumni get dental coverage. A strong majority of alumni set aside retirement funds in an employer-sponsored 401(k). University of Richmond grads also enjoy benefits like a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and flexible hours.

Related Schools

Washington and Lee University grads report the most similar salaries to UR alums, earning $66K on average. Randolph-Macon College, Hampden-Sydney College, and Sweet Briar College are also similar to UR.
