Xavier alumni belong to a wide range of sectors. A few fields in which grads tend to find work include the health care industry, the financial services industry, and the education industry.

Financial Analysts pick up $46K in financial rewards, representing the lowest-paid position among alumni.


Xavier alumni typically remain in Cincinnati, the city they've grown to love, after graduation, and a little more than half of grads find permanent positions in the workforce here. Cleveland is also a common destination for Xavier grads and offers the best pay with a median salary of $90K. Though New York takes the cake for lowest pay among Xavier grads (the median salary is $55K there), it remains a common destination for former students. Chicago is also a top pick, as is Dallas.
