Career Outcomes Rate: Source: National Association of Colleges and Employers, 2021. “First Destinations for the College Class of 2021.” Note: Purdue Global data are based on its submission to the 2021 NACE First Destination survey; “Career Outcomes Rate” is not the same as an “employment rate”—it includes graduates who are: (1) employed (whether full or part time); (2) participating in a program of voluntary service, (3) serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, or (4) enrolled in a program of continuing education. This rate may also include graduates employed in jobs unrelated to their degree or who were employed while attending Purdue Global. “Knowledge Rate” depicts the percent of graduates for whom a career outcomes destination is known. For further information on the “Career Outcomes Rate” or the “Knowledge Rate,” contact the Center for Career Advancement at Purdue Global at All figures are rounded to the nearest whole percentage point and include data prior to the March 2018 purchase of Kaplan University by Purdue University and subsequent creation of Purdue Global.
