Please note that disclosure of an individual's salary is voluntary and many graduates choose, for privacy reasons, to decline to participate in that part of the survey. In order to avoid inadvertent disclosure of individualized information, a minimum of five salaries is required for salary analysis in a category. Categories with less than five salaries reported are indicated with an asterisk. Categories that do not include any graduates are not shown.
