The average starting salary for a graduate of Wellesley is $60K.
It is also not uncommon to find former Wellesley students living and working in New York, N.Y. — this top-paying city is a popular destination with a median salary of $75K. Wellesley alumni in Boston, Mass. can often be found sliding in at the lower end of the pay scale, where median paychecks are the smallest at $55K.
Wellesley students with a B.A. in Bachelor of Arts (BA) can expect to make the most money (about $75K on average per year) compared to their fellow graduates. A Bachelor's Degree commands less pay, and these degree-holders face median pay of $69K.
Many former Wellesley students are familiar with Project Management, and just under a third of grads move on to positions where this experience is utilized. Wellesley College grads with Project Management abilities can expect to make 37 percent more than their former classmates (around $83K).
To plan for old age, more than half of grads maintain savings accounts through a company's 401(k) plan. It is no small feat that the larger part of respondents are given health coverage, and more than half of former students accept dental insurance. Wellesley College alumni are also on the receiving end of a casual working environment.
Trinity College graduates, who earn approximately $62K on average, make a similar amount to Wellesley grads. Pine Manor College, College of the Holy Cross, and Wheaton College are also similar to Wellesley.
