Darla Moore School of Business

Job Placement Success at the Moore School

A degree from the Darla Moore School of Business provides an excellent return on investment for students and parents and a fantastic source of talent for our employer partners to source for both internships and full-time positions. As a result of programmatic changes, job placement and average salaries have improved substantially for undergraduates and several graduate programs. 

Undergraduate Programs

Each year the University's Career Center issues an employment survey to all graduating undergraduate students, including business graduates. The following information is a synopsis of the employment information gathered about Moore School undergraduates graduating during the 2021-2022 academic year. 

While we have the most up-to-date data below, Poets and Quants has rated the Darla Moore School of Business as their No. 11 school for return on investment. That's due, in part, to our undergraduate average 2021-2022 starting salary of $66,159.
