IWU maintains 97% career outcomes rate
Indiana Wesleyan University is pleased to announce it has a 97% career outcomes rate, which is 6% higher than the national average career outcomes rate for private institutions. A “career outcomes rate” measures those graduates who fall into one of the following five categories: employed full time, employed part time, volunteer service, military service or continuing education.
Additionally, IWU boasts a 100% career outcomes rate when students participate in Career Development’s Accelerate Indiana Internship Program during college. The program allows students the unique opportunity to intern at local Indiana businesses. Many employers take on interns with the hopes of turning them into a full-time employee.
