First Destinations

Our first destination survey reports that more than half of our graduates (54%) consistently go directly into full-time employment or paid public service, while more than a third (35%) enroll in graduate or professional programs. For the class of 2018, the top five fields of employment were:

  • Healthcare
  • Internet and software
  • Management consulting
  • Investment banking and portfolio management
  • Higher education

The top locations for our grads include Maryland, Washington D.C., New York, and California, with about a third of those working full-time choosing to stay in the Baltimore area.
