Dordt graduates have found positions in a wide range of businesses and non-profit organizations, government agencies, management information services, and other areas.
Over the past 10 years, more than 98 percent of our graduates have found jobs within six months of graduation. They have taken positions such as:
- accountant with Eide Bailey
- commodity broker with BDF Investments
- security representative with Citibank
- network administrator with Blackwell Consulting
- operations analyst with Wells Fargo
After five years on the job, many alumni report that their broad-based, comprehensive education has given them the tools to advance more quickly than co-workers from more specialized programs.
Some graduates have gone directly into M.B.A. and Ph.D. programs at schools across the country, including Harvard, Yale, Georgetown, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, California state universities, and the University of Iowa. Others have entered law school.
The number of our students who pass the CPA exam on the first attempt is above the national average. In both 2010 and 2012, a Dordt accounting major was awarded one of the prestigious Elijah Watt Sells Award, which are presented annually to those who pass all four parts of the exam on their first attempt with an average score of 95.5 percent or higher.
