At Georgia Tech Commencement, students are asked to complete a survey that includes information about their plans. Last semester about half of our undergraduates reported that they’re moving on directly to graduate schools. Those that are starting new jobs reported on their salary offers and bonuses. Their success is not an infallible predictor of the future for any of our current students, of course, but….. for Spring 2008, Public Policy students reported the highest median starting salary of any major at Georgia Tech — higher than the starting salaries any of the other undergraduate programs in engineering, computing, management, architecture, science, or elsewhere in Ivan Allen College. BSPP students also reported the highest median bonuses.
This is a reflection of the academic abilities, hard work, and entrepreneurial energy of BSPP students.
