SLU: Best in State for Jobs
Saint Louis University ranks as the top university in Missouri for job placement, with 93.48 percent of alumni employed, according to Zippia, a career resources website.
“One of the biggest things that incoming college freshmen consider when they’re thinking of what school to attend is the likelihood that a school will improve their job prospects,” Zippia noted in producing its list.
Zippia used data gathered by the National Center of Education Statistics and U.S. Department of Education as a starting point for its research. It searched the colleges in each state with the highest listed job placement ratings. It analyzed 46 public and non-profit, four-year institutions of higher education in Missouri, specifically looked at employment levels 10 years after graduation.
