Employment Statistics

A degree from the Darla Moore School of Business provides a great return on investment for students and parents, and fantastic talent for our employer partners to source for internships and full-time positions. See below for more detailed information about employment outcomes.

Each year the University's Career Center issues an employment survey to all graduating undergraduate students, including business graduates. The following information is a synopsis of the employment information gathered about Moore School undergraduates graduating during the 2017-18 academic year. 

Poets and Quants rates the Darla Moore School of Business as their #6 school for return on investment. That's due, in part, to our undergraduate average starting salary of $56,089.
