Ninety-five percent of Curry College’s undergraduate Class of 2019 are employed, continuing their education, or active in volunteer or military service roles, according to new data collected by the College. More than 93 percent of the young alumni are working in New England with jobs in Boston’s largest hospitals, school districts, police precincts, news stations, and corporate brands. Some of the leading employers in the area that continue to hire Curry graduates include Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston’s FOX25 News, and the Boston Police Department.
“With our new job placement data, it is clear that employers continue to recognize the value that our graduates bring to the workforce,” says Michael Bosco, assistant vice president of Academic Affairs.
The new job placement statistics are collected by Curry’s Center for Career Development, which follows survey and reporting guidelines provided by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). For 2019, data was collected for 362 the 380 members of the class. The responses represent 95 percent of Class of 2019 graduates, roughly a third higher than the national average for institutional knowledge rate percentage as reported by NACE.
The graduates in many of the College’s signature programs including criminal justice and business recorded a 98 percent career outcome rate, while accounting, biology, and graphic design boast a 100 percent rate. Curry’s newest alumni are also now pursuing dental, medical, and law school among other prestigious graduate programs studying across the country and nearby at Suffolk University, Tufts University, Northeastern University, and UMASS Medical School.
