Reputation and Outcomes

A nationally ranked, doctoral-granting university, RMU has the professionally focused degree programs and personal attention that are the gateway to great careers and great lives.

Gallup studies show RMU students are more likely than typical college graduates to say college prepared them for life after graduation, are more likely to have a job offer waiting when they graduate, earn more, and are more engaged in their careers and thriving in their personal well-being. And with RMU’s Student Engagement Transcript, graduates have a record to show future employers of their leadership and other experiences outside the classroom.

  • 95% placement in a job or graduate school within a year of graduation

  • 67% of graduates had an internship in their field

  • 77% of graduates work in a professional or managerial position

  • 84% of graduates are employed in their field

RMU is:

  • Ranked in 2018 U.S. News & World Report "Best Colleges" at No. 183 among more than 300 national doctoral-granting universities.
  • One of only 16 universities in the country named a Center of Actuarial Excellence by the Society of Actuaries. 
  • The first university in Pennsylvania to join the Amazon Web Service Academy and offer cloud computing certification curriculum.
  • Military-friendly, with scholarships and grants to close the gap between federal Yellow Ribbon Program benefits and tuition, and ranked 10th among all private universities in Military Times's "Best for Vets: Colleges 2019".

These statistics are great, but they don’t tell the whole story.

See what our graduates say about how RMU put them on the fast track to career success.

“I hope to look back over the next 10-20 years and realize that a lot of us today were a big part of this university's foundation."

“I just felt like I was not done in my academic journey and wanted to prove to myself that I could successfully achieve such a difficult goal."

“Attending a smaller private university with manageable class sizes has been a key to my success in the classroom.”
