* Data reflect the employer’s average offer to all types of graduates at the bachelor’s degree level.

A year of positive reports on the job market for new

college graduates has finished strong in terms of

starting salary offers to members of the Class of 2011.

In the Fall 2011 Salary Survey report, the final one for

Class of 2011 graduates, the overall average salary

offer has risen 6 percent over last year’s average, from

$48,288 to $51,171. Triggering this increase is the

fact that, of individual disciplines that are showing a

change in their average salary offer, more than 85

percent are indicating an increase.

This marks the fourth straight issue of Salary Survey that

reports an increase to the overall average salary offer.

While starting salaries are on the rise, so is the number of

reported offers, which is 28 percent higher in this report

than in the Fall 2010 Salary Survey report.

The good news from the Fall 2011 Salary Survey is

just the latest for the Class of 2011. NACE’s 2011

Student Survey shows that 41 percent of participating

seniors who applied for a job received an offer,

compared to 38 percent from the Class of 2010. And

earlier in the year, employers responding to NACE’s

Job Outlook 2011 Spring Update survey reported

plans to hire 19 percent more new college graduates

this year than they hired last year.

Business Majors

Graduates earning business degrees fared well in this

report; their overall average salary rose 4.6 percent

above last year’s average—from $46,672 to $48,805.

Bolstering this ascent is the fact that, of the individual

majors in the business category that had changes to

their average salary offers, all but one posted increases.

In last year’s Fall 2010 Salary Survey report, business

administration/management graduates ended the

year with their overall average salary offer down 1.4

percent. In this issue, these graduates close the year

on a much brighter note: Their average salary offer

jumped 5.4 percent to $46,372. One contributing

factor may be the increase in the number and average

salary offer of financial analysis positions for these

graduates. In this issue, there were three times the

number of financial analysis positions reported, and

the average salary offer climbed 14.3 percent from

$50,265 to $57,470.

Both economics and finance graduates saw their

average salary offers increase. The average salary offer

for economics graduates rose 3.9 percent to $53,690,

while the average salary offer for finance majors grew

by 4.8 percent to $51,503.

Meanwhile, students earning

marketing degrees also saw an

increase to their average salary

offer, which rose 3 percent to

$42,923. With an average offer

of $44,484, retail/wholesale

employers made the most offers to

these graduates.

Computer Science Majors

At this time last year, it appeared

that salaries to computer-related

graduates were leveling. They

ended the year with their overall

average salary offer down 1.7

percent from the previous year.

SCOPE AND NATURE OF THE SURVEY

Employment Information Manager: Andrea Koncz Editorial: Kevin Gray Design: Karen Y. Berger

ABOUT THE SURVEY

Salary Survey compiles data from career planning and placement offices of colleges and universities across the United States. The reports consist of starting salary offers made to new graduates by employing organizations in business, industry, government, and by nonprofit and educational institutions. The figures reported are for base salaries only and do not include bonuses, fringe benefits, or overtime rates. Confidentiality is maintained for the individual, the college, and the employer.

The number of offers reported in each report is cumulative from the previous September. The offers reported in Salary Survey are a sample of actual job offers made to new college graduates during the recruiting year and do not imply all job offers made to all college graduates.

Salary Survey reports offers, not acceptances. It does not distinguish between single and multiple offers to individual students and, con-sequently, offers in the study cannot be equated with actual hires. Also, in as much as the ratio of offers to hires is partially a function of the economic climate, year-to-year ratio comparisons based on survey data would be invalid. In those categories where offers are relatively few, the data should be regarded only as indicative. Salary Survey is available only to members of the National Associa-tion of Colleges and Employers and to Salary Survey subscribers, and is intended for their professional use.

Salary Survey (ISSN 1520-8648) is published four times a year in February, April, July, and September by the National Associa-tion of Colleges and Employers, 62 Highland Ave., Bethlehem, PA 18017-9085.

All 2011 issues of Salary Survey will report on salary offers extended to students graduating between September

1, 2010, and August 31, 2011. The Fall 2011 Salary Survey contains information received during the period of

September 1, 2010, through August 9, 2011.

In November, 2010, Salary Survey participants received reporting packets that prepared them to report data for all

2011 issues of Salary Survey. Schools that participated in the Fall report submitted their data to NACE by August

9, 2011, and are listed on the back cover of the report.

Schools were required to report the student’s major, degree level, salary offer and graduation date. They had the

option of reporting the student’s gender, job location, employer type that extended the offer, and the job function. To

participate in Salary Survey, please contact Andrea Koncz at 800-544-5272, ext. 121 or akoncz@naceweb.org.

Employers may use Salary Survey as a guide for determining salaries for new college hires. It may also be used as

a tool for comparing current salaries to the national averages, or to the salaries that similar employers are offering.

Colleges may use Salary Survey to counsel students regarding salaries they may have been offered, or to benchmark

the salaries that their institution’s own students are receiving against national averages.

Salary Survey offers averages as well as percentiles, so it is recommended that decisions are based upon as many

data points as possible. Also, it is recommended that all sections of the report be used.

Job location reports are also available for purchase by employers having multiple locations. For example, these reports

allow for comparing salaries in New York to those in Los Angeles. And for reports on salaries based only on target

schools, Key School reports may be purchased. Key School reports give the averages by discipline (in aggregate)

based upon a group of schools (minimum of six schools).

National Association of Colleges and Employers

By Curriculum for All Types of Employers

This section shows an overall average salary offer

accord-ing to the student’s major field of study, with no regard

to the type of position offered or the type of employer

extending the offer. Refer to this section when you want

to know the average starting salary offer for a graduate

holding a degree in a specific discipline, such as

account-ing, computer science, mechanical engineeraccount-ing, etc.

By Functional Area for All Types of Employers

This section shows an overall average salary offer

accord-ing to the job function offered to the candidate, with no

regard to the degree held or the type of employer

extend-ing the offer. Refer to this section when you are lookextend-ing

for the average starting salary offer for a particular job

function, such as sales, computer programming, process

engineering, etc.

Starting Salary Offers to All Candidates by Curriculum

and Employer

This section shows data first by looking at the type of

degree held by the student, then according to the type

of employer who extended the offer. Refer to this section

when you are looking for the average starting salary offer

from a specific type of employer to a graduate holding a

specific type of degree. For example, use this section to

find out the average salary offer consulting firms made to

electrical engineering graduates.

Data in this section are listed as follows: Bold headings

are the curriculum areas, which follow the order shown

on pages 4 and 5. Employer types under each curriculum

are categorized according to the sector of the economy

they fall under with service employers being listed first,

followed by manufacturing employers, then by nonprofit/

government employers.

Starting Salary Offers to All Candidates by Curriculum

and Job Function

This section shows data first by looking at the type of degree

held by the student, then according to the job function that

was offered. Refer to this section when you need information

about the average salary offer to a graduate holding a specific

type of degree for a specific job function. For example, use

this section to find out the average starting salary offer to

MIS graduates performing systems analysis work.

Data in this section are listed as follows: Bold headings

rep-resent the curriculum areas, which follow the order shown on

pages 4 and 5. Job functions under each curriculum are listed

in the order in which they appear on pages 6 and 7.

Number of Offers Reported

When referring to Salary Survey, it is important to consider

the number of offers that each average salary represents.

Averages with a low number of offers should be viewed

with caution.

Areas typically containing a low number of offers at the

bachelor’s degree level are communications, health sciences,

home economics, and humanities and social sciences (liberal

arts). The number of offers reported can be low for a variety of

reasons. In some instances, the number of degrees awarded

to a particular major is low, thereby making data scarce

for the group. In addition, because Salary Survey reports

up-to-the-minute salary offers (e.g. those being extended to

the current graduating class), those majors that typically

don’t find employment until after graduation may not be

represented in the report. Furthermore, other graduates,

such as teachers and healthcare workers, have more of a

direct path to a job, so they are less likely to be involved

in the campus recruiting program, and thereby less likely to

report their salary offers.
