Strong Graduate Employment Outcomes

SMU graduates are known amongst employers to be bold, confident and articulate. That is why, in the recent Graduate Employment Survey (GES), our graduates scored an all-time high in terms of starting salaries and employment rate across all six of the university's degree programmes.

Latest updates - 2016 GES (announced on 22 February 2017)

94% employment within six months of graduation and with higher starting salaries. Compare with their peers from other local universities, SMU graduates also earned the most, with a mean gross monthly salary of $3,722.
