career by providing a variety of training activities, programs, and services that
support the goals of our students and McKendree University.

Graduates from McKendree University work in a variety of settings after graduation, including large corporations, small businesses, schools, hospitals, government agencies, and non-profit organizations, among others. The Career Outcomes Rate for the Class of 2016 is 95% for undergraduates and 99% for graduates, as determined through a survey that is distributed to all students before and after graduation. The survey results also found that 14% of undergraduate and 1% of graduate students immediately continued their education by going on to graduate and professional schools in law, business, medicine, psychology, sociology, and communication, among others. All results are based on those who replied to the survey. Our knowledge rate for 2016 undergraduates is 79% and for graduates is 83%.
