Many UW-Eau Claire grads flock to Minneapolis, Minn. Another city that attracts a wealth of UW-Eau Claire grads is Chicago, Ill.; given its high compensation ($120K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. Though Madison, Wisc. takes the cake for lowest pay among UW-Eau Claire grads (the median salary is $55K there), it remains a common destination for former students. Other common destinations for UW-Eau Claire grads include close-by Eau Claire, Wisc. and Milwaukee, Wisc.

Degree Major

A graduate with a Master of Business Administration (MBA), General Business from UW-Eau Claire can rake in a whopping average $138K per year, more than any other degree from this school. Graduates holding a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Human Resources Management (HRM) fare the worst in terms of compensation with an average yearly salary of around $39K.


Knowledge of Leadership seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are nearly double their former classmates' salaries (about $115K). Many former UW-Eau Claire students are familiar with Microsoft Excel, and one in seven grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized. Proficiency in Project Management, Microsoft Office, and Data Analysis command top-of-the-line rewards as well.

Benefits and Perks

Though a little less than half of the former students get paid time off for vacation, only one in three grads receive paid sick leave. It is no small feat that a large number of former students are given health coverage, and a strong majority of alums accept dental insurance. To plan for old age, a large number of respondents maintain savings accounts through a company's 401(k) plan. University of Wisconsin graduates also take advantage of a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.
