Huntsman Grads Impacting Utah's Economy

A new study shows 74 percent of 2010-11 Huntsman graduates landed a full-time job within three months of graduation, with undergrads, on average, earning $45,000 for starting wages, and graduate degree holders averaging $65,000.

Eric Schulz, co-director of strategic marketing and brand management at the Huntsman School, helped organize the research, which was conducted by a team of MBA students as a class project. Such data is important because many entities that rank colleges and universities factor in this information when it comes to determining rankings.

“The research proved the Huntsman School is truly an engine for Utah’s eco­nomic growth,” Eric said. “Some 81 percent of graduates landed jobs within Utah.”

Two of the respondents took their careers international; one is working in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and another in Canberra, Australia, Eric said.
