Xavier alumni can most commonly be found in the health care industry, the education industry, and the financial services industry, though they are employed throughout a wide range of sectors. The majority of Xavier alumni wind up in the banking industry. Following graduation, Xavier students earn an average of $66K.


Xavier grads who become General Manager VPs garner financial rewards beyond any other job type for this group — these alumni rake in an average $160K annually.

Sitting at the bottom of the pay scale are IT Business Analysts who make an average of about $57K.


Despite handing out the worst average salary (approximately $61K), Cincinnati, Ohio holds on to its Xavier student population, and over one-half of grads continue to reside in the city. Xavier grads with a different agenda may consider the above-average salaries in Cleveland, Ohio — pay averages to $120K. Dallas, Texas is also a top pick, as is Dayton, Ohio.

Degree Major

Financial compensation is highest for Xavier grads with a medical degree (average earnings climb to about $120K per year). Graduates holding a Master of Education (MEd) fare the worst in terms of compensation with an average yearly salary of $36K.


Operations Management commands a pay premium of 71 percent for former Musketeers. Xavier grads are usually competent in Project Management, and about one in six alumni continue practicing this skill in their career. Competency in Data Analysis, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Office also warrants excellent remuneration.

Benefits and Perks

Only two-fifths of alumni earn paid vacation and just one in three grads get paid sick time. Health benefits extend to a large number of grads, and a large number of alumni also receive dental coverage. A large number of respondents allocate some part of their earnings to a company-sponsored 401(k) savings plan. Additional perks enjoyed by Xavier University grads include life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, a casual working environment, and tuition reimbursement.
