It’s graduation time, a time of the year when the results of our collective efforts can be seen through the successes of our graduating students. As an early internal estimate, we are expecting 308 students to graduate in May. Graduates from our seven undergraduate majors include the following: Accounting (83), Information Systems (21), Marketing (39), Management (34), Industrial Distribution (24), Finance (21) and Economics (8). We also have 78 students receiving their graduate degrees: MBA (56) and MAc (22).
While it is important for our students to graduate in a timely manner, it is also very important to us to see our students go on to graduate schools or to compete successfully for jobs in the marketplace. Graduating seniors are surveyed each semester about their employment outlook and graduate school plans. We are pleased to report that out of the 80% who have already responded to this spring’s Undergraduate Success Survey, 86% reported that they are employed or going to graduate school.
