The results of the 2021-22 First Destination Survey are now available, as well as visualizations of the data.
On the undergraduate side, 86% of bachelor’s degree recipients who graduated in the 2021-22 academic year are employed or engaged in another full-time activity, including those who are employed, enrolled in graduate/professional school, in the military or are in a stipend-paid service position as of six months after graduation. Ninety-five percent of full-time employed respondents indicated that they consider their job to be related to their career goals, very similar to prior cohorts.
For graduate and Graduate School of Management students who graduated in the 2021-22 academic year, the full-time employment rate is 86%, the highest of the last five years. Ninety-seven percent of full-time employed respondents indicated that they consider their job to be related to their career goals, very similar to prior cohorts.
The First Destination Survey investigates the employment and enrollment in graduate/professional school activities of recent degree recipients with the goal of estimating post-graduation outcomes rates. The target population was degree recipients who graduated between July 1, 2021, and June 30, 2022. The undergraduate survey had an 89% response rate, and the graduate/GSM survey had a 71% response rate.
