Darla Moore School of Business

Job Placement Success at the Moore School

A degree from the Darla Moore School of Business provides an excellent return on investment for students and parents and a fantastic source of talent for our employer partners to source for both internships and full-time positions. As a result of programmatic changes, job placement and average salaries have improved substantially for undergraduates and several graduate programs. Many of the Moore School’s programs are now within or close to the level of top 25 programs in the U.S.  See below for more detailed information about employment outcomes for both undergraduate and graduate programs.

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 2018-2019 academic year. 

While we have the most up-to-date data below, Poets and Quants has rated the Darla Moore School of Business as their #6 school for return on investment. That's due, in part, to our undergraduate average 2017-2018 starting salary of $56,089.
