The UGA Career Outcomes Initiative

The Career Outcomes Initiative provides insight into the employment and continuing education status of UGA graduates within an average of 6 months of their graduation date. Additionally, the data provides detailed employment, salary, and graduate school information. These reports constitute the only centralized employment data collection for The University of Georgia and are used by current students, employers, colleges/schools, departments, and other stakeholders. Data from our survey is published in the UGA Fact Book and reported to various organizations that rank colleges, such as US News and World Report.

CAREER OUTCOMES RATE

The Career Outcomes Rate is calculated from the percentage of students who are either employed, continuing their education, or not currently seeking employment within an average of 6 months after graduation. UGA’s 95% Career Outcomes Rate is 13% higher than the National Average.
