University of Virginia Masters in Commerce 2016 Placements

The University of Virginia Masters in Commerce placements have been released and as always, I am excited to report them. They are always consistently good and this year is no exception. This success builds upon itself and every year the depth of the alumni base increases and the quality of students increase, making it easier to continue to achieve these amazing results. Enjoy!

UVA MS Commerce 2016 Placement Results

  • Class size – 111 students
  • Placement Rate – 92% (96.5% if you include those considering offers and 1 person considering graduate school)

The MS Commerce program has three tracks: Business Analytics, Marketing & Management and Finance. Marketing & Management was 40% of the class, with the other two representing approximately 30% each.

Average Starting Salary

  • Business Analytics – $68,276
  • Finance – $69,412
  • Marketing & Management – $58,815

Finance had the highest average all in salary, coming in at $111,440. This obviously would be higher for an investment banking analyst and lower for someone going into say regional asset management.

UVA does something unique in the fact that show you the totality of firms that have placed students every year. I’m sure if you’d like more granular information you can get it from the career or admissions office. What I like about this is that is shows you who interviews and hires students across the board, instead of every year since career outcomes fluctuate based on class desire and economic realities.
