Proven Results

When we talk about a Robert Morris University education being an investment, we mean one with a high rate of return. If you want proof, you don't have to look any further than our current undergraduate placement rate – 93 percent. It's just one of the things that makes RMU a university of choice for students who want academic excellence with a professional focus in a private school setting, all for an affordable cost.

Simply put, 93 percent of RMU graduates have a job or are enrolled in graduate school a year after graduation – 86 percent are employed and 7 percent are in graduate school – and most of those who are employed are working in their field of study. (Percentage based on the university’s placement report for students who earned a bachelor's degree in 2012.)

Recently, Robert Morris was ranked among the top 10 business schools in the nation for providing graduates with the greatest return on their investment, according to a survey by PayScale, an organization that provides salary data to individuals and companies.

This kind of success can be found across all five of our academic schools and within all 60 of our undergraduate degree programs, and it stems from things like:

  • Personal attention from faculty with industry experience.
  • RMU’s Student Engagement Program, which requires students to take part in leadership, service, research, international and professional activities outside the classroom.
  • Internship and other work-related opportunities, as well as mentoring by alumni, faculty, staff, trustees, and professional advisory boards.
  • RMU's degree programs are professionally focused and each of our five schools are recognized by national accreditation organizations.
