The University of Virginia Masters in Commerce program has some of the best placements of all the specialized masters programs. These great results have continued for the 2015 class. I consider to be a function of a number of things, mainly the amazing organization of the program, effort the admissions and career staff put into each class and the McIntire brand. I have no doubt these results will continue for the foreseeable future.
The graduating class had a 95% placement rate of students who have either accepted or are considering a job offer three months after graduation. Another 2% were pursing additional schools. The class is split between those focusing on finance (36%) and those focusing on marketing and management (64%).
Total compensation skews higher for the finance graduates (for obvious reasons), but the total compensation for the marketing and management graduates is a respectable $69K.
