Around this time of the year, graduation is approaching. From the Pew Research Center, we’ve compiled some statistics for you about the realities of newly college graduates in landing a decent job and how they will reflect the choices they made in college.
According to the National Student Clearinghouse, 2.4 million first-time college students enrolling in 2007 with the intent to obtain a degree had the highest completion rate (72.9%) at four-year, private, nonprofit schools, and the lowest (39.9%) at two-year public institutions.
The National Center for Education Services posted that about 20.5% of the 1.79 million bachelor’s degrees handed out in 2011-2012 were under Business. The least common degrees given out were in library science during that year were military science and applied sciences, and precision production.
With graduation season in full effect, what is your opinion on how you line up with some of these statistics? Please feel free to comment and share below!
