A future so bright

CMCers see impressive outcomes after graduation

The Student Opportunity Center has released some remarkable numbers showing that CMCers are taking advantage of opportunities before and after graduation.

In 2016, the average starting salary for CMC alumni was over $62,000, ranking CMC #4 in the most recent Payscale.com survey. Incidentally, The New York Times published a recent article on the proliferation of college rankings and their wildly divergent results. Noting the importance of graduates’ salary, the Times asked Payscale to rank on graduate earnings and job satisfaction. CMC was number one.

Additionally, over 90% of CMC’s student body participates in internships and CMC routinely sponsors over 200 experiences each summer. CMC’s most popular interest clusters include:

  • Consulting:
    • Organization examples: Accenture, Bain, Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte & McKinsey
  • Financial Services/Accounting/Insurance
    • Organization examples: Black Rock, EY, Federal Reserve, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, PwC, & Wells Fargo
  • Technology/Entrepreneurship:
    • Organization examples: Amazon, Cloud Flare, Google, Intuit and Microsoft
  • Non-profit/Social Enterprise/Education:
    • Organization examples: AmeriCorps, National Park Service, Teach for America & US Army
  • Medicine/Heath Services/BioTech:
    • Organization examples: DaVita, Department of Health & Epic Systems

Over 10% of CMC graduates immediately attend graduate school or pursue prestigious fellowships.

“CMC students are incredibly engaged in securing internships and full time opportunities in a variety of professions,” said Associate Vice President and Dean for Student Opportunities Michelle Chamberlain. “Although recruiting in financial services remains strong, we are seeing the most growth in the areas of consulting and technology.”
