Fresh on the heels of Tuskegee University’s Summer Commencement Exercises, career website Zippia.com has some good news for recent and future graduates of the university. The website’s July 24 report ranks Tuskegee fourth in Alabama for students’ ability to land a job following graduation.
Tuskegee’s 89.82 percent employment rate also makes it second on the list among private schools and first among HBCUs in the state. Only a tenth of a percentage point separated Tuskegee and the third-ranked school on the list.
Zippia.com analyzed information available through the College Scorecard Data and Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) for Alabama’s 28 four-year, bachelor’s degree-granting institutions. The site then ranked each college based on job-placement ratings — specifically, the employment levels among their alumni at year 10 following their graduation.
