Program Outcomes

Student Outcomes for Academic Years 2011-2015 

The following are retention, job placement, graduate survey participation and satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and CMA exam participation and pass rates for the 5-year period ending in 2015.  The numbers are for students entering the MA program each year.

We have included 2016 retention and job placement rates for students who have graduated so far—not all entering in 2016 have completed the program yet, so the surveys are still out.  2016 is not included in the 5-year average.
