Four out of five members of Northwestern’s Class of 2013 are either employed or continuing their education on a full-time basis six months after graduation. In addition, starting salaries for those employed full time averaged almost $50,000 per year.

This is according to a new study from University Career Services, part of Northwestern’s Division of Student Affairs. The study questioned more than 1,000 Class of 2013 alumni spanning all seven of the University’s colleges and schools offering bachelor’s degrees.
