96 percent graduate Placement Rate Over Five Years

Over the last five years, more than 96 percent of Fairfield graduates secured either full-time employment or acceptance into graduate schools and volunteer programs within six months post-graduation. The most recent graduating class was no different.
After following up with 85 percent of the Class of 2016, the Academic and Career Development Center confirmed that 96 percent of these students also secured full-time employment, placement in a graduate or professional school or are participating in a volunteer service program within six months after graduation. Our Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies students achieved a 100 percent overall placement rate in both the undergraduate and graduate school programs.
Over 44 percent of the students from the Class of 2016 obtained employment through Fairfield University’s senior year campus recruiting and employment resources. Financial Services (21%), followed by Healthcare/Nursing (18%) and Communication/Marketing (17%) represented the most popular fields of work.
