Graduate Survey Information and Results

UW-Parkside conducts two surveys of graduates: One survey is completed at the time of graduation and the alumni survey is done 12-15 months after graduation. The response rate for the alumni survey is about 20%. Due to the relatively new programs and low response rates, we have not yet separated the BUSO students from traditional business students nor the MBAO students from traditional MBA students. The survey at graduation shows the following results.
