Job Placement & Outcomes
While the value of an education cannot be measured simply in dollars and cents, you can be sure that the bottom line of a Creighton education is sound. Creighton graduates are considered highly regarded, desirable candidates as they search for employment or post-graduate education. Just look at the numbers:
- 96.16% Success Rate
With over 96% of our students employed, volunteering, or attending graduate or professional school within eight months of graduation, Creighton graduates go places with their degrees. (This success rate includes the group of students in this graduation class year that were accepted into professional school before completing their baccalaureate degrees at Creighton.)
- 49% Arts & Sciences Post-graduate Study Rate
About half of the students in the College of Arts and Sciences pursue graduate or professional degrees immediately following their undergraduate programs. Between 5 and 10 percent more enter graduate or professional programs following "gap years" to do volunteer work or to take more classes to become more competitive for graduate and professional school.
- 200 Companies Represented
More than 200 companies recruit on campus each year, and thousands more list their professional and internship positions with us.

2011 - 2012 Graduates by Undergraduate College
|College||Employed||Grad/Professional School||Volunteer Programs||Still Searching||Success Rate|
|Arts & Sciences||35.01%||48.97%||12.81%||3.20%||96.80%|
- The overall success rate for all undergraduate colleges nine months after graduation is 96.16%. This is nearly 3% better than the overall success rate for 2010-11 graduates and significantly higher than the national average, which is in the 70-80% range.
- The College of Arts and Sciences success rate for this year’s class is nearly 97%, an improvement of more than 5% from last year.
- Heider College of Business graduates enjoyed a 4% increase in salary over last year while College of Nursing salaries exceeded last year’s average by 6.5%.
- 49% of College of Arts and Sciences graduates were successfully accepted into graduate and professional school programs. If considering all those students in CCAS that take “gap years” to do volunteer work or to take more classes to become more competitive for graduate and professional school, that figure increases to 55-60%.
Special note: These data are based on an 81% response rate of graduates from December 2010 through August 2011. This response rate is much higher than the national average reported by most career centers, which is usually less than 50%. Surveys that receive a response of less than 50% are much more likely to be skewed to a higher success rate than actually true.
