What are our alumni up to?

In September 2017, we reached out to our alumni to ask what they were up to — here’s a snapshot of what they told us.*

Within a year of graduation, 92% were employed, and the average salary one year out was $56,000

This aligns with Stats Canada data from 2016, which showed that economics degrees yield the strongest average salaries of all of the social sciences, with average annual salaries ranging from $78,000 (for women) to $105,000 (for men).

So, what are our graduates up to? Here's what we found out:
