NMU Graduate Survey Results

Each year, the Career Services Office is responsible for surveying graduates from all degree programs offered at Northern Michigan University.  These survey results provide a comprehensive picture of the success NMU graduates have as it relates to their career and continuing education endeavors. 

Graduate on top of the world

Please note the following as you examine the graduate survey results:

  • Each report below encompasses participants from three commencement exercises.
    • 2012-2013 survey year: August 2012, December 2012, May 2013
    • 2011-2012 survey year: August 2011, December 2011, May 2012
    • 2010-2011 survey year: August 2010, December 2010, May 2011
    • 2009-2010 survey year: August 2009, December 2009, May 2010
  • Cumulative Graduate Survey report results are a compilation of graduate responses from August 1998 – May 2013.
  • 10-Year Cumulative Graduate Survey report results are a compilation of graduate responses from December 2002 - May 2012.
  • "Employed" and "Continuing Education" are not mutually exclusive choices on the NMU Graduate Survey. Therefore, the cumulative percentages listed for these two choices for some majors may exceed 100%.  If the percentages do not add up to 100%, some respondents to the survey have indicated that they are either “employed” and “continuing education” OR “unemployed” and “continuing education.”
  • Percentages indicated are the percent of those responding to the survey.

Faculty and staff who need specific reports for accreditation or assessment purposes are encouraged to contact the Career Services office (906-227-2800 or careers@nmu.edu).  We will be more than happy to assist you with your reporting requirements.
