Graduate Destinations

NYU Shanghai's first graduates are already making their mark around the world as they build careers, embark on graduate study and realize their passions.  Since graduating in May 2017, the inaugural class has achieved an overall combined placement rate of 94 percent in a variety of professional and academic fields, including finance, law practice, interactive media arts, business management, and computer science.

Of the 141 Chinese graduates, all are now either working or studying, with 51 percent actively enrolled in overseas postgraduate programs and 49 percent in employment with some of China and the world's biggest companies.

The 2017 Life Beyond Century Avenue report is based on NYU Shanghai’s first destination survey, an annual report which collects the first destinations of graduates within six months of their graduation.
