After Graduation

No matter which of our undergraduate programs they choose, our students are prepared and in demand when they graduate.

And while they’re on campus and after, Emory’s 149,000 alumni live worldwide and are an eager resource for students looking for mentoring and career advice.

Take a look at what our students are doing in the world not long after they graduate. Remember, Oxford College students continue to and graduate from either Emory College, the business school, or the nursing school, so they are included in the stats for these three schools.

Emory College

Within less than three months after graduation, graduates are pursuing the following opportunities:

  • 43% Employed
  • 38% Continuing Education/Fellowships
  • 2.6% Gap Year/Volunteer/Not Actively Seeking
  • 5% Postgraduate Internships
  • 3% Return to Home Country
  • .4% Military
  • 8% Currently Seeking Opportunity

The Emory Career Center collects information up to three months after graduation versus a national standard of six months after graduation. We believe this is a more accurate representation of career outcomes shortly after graduation.
