In recent years, Gerstacker graduates have secured jobs at four of the top five BusinessWeek "Best Places to Launch a Career" -- PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, and Google.
Perhaps more important is the proportion of students who have found opportunities (including graduate school acceptance) before graduation or by August 31 of their graduation year. For the class of 2007, 75% graduated with opportunities in hand and 98% had opportunities by the end of the summer. For the class of 2008, the numbers were 75% and 89%, respectively. These figures are not limited to students who reported data; we keep track of all of our graduates.
Based on results from an alumni survey completed in 2008, nearly 60% of those responding had completed a graduate degree. Not surprisingly, MBAs and other business-related degrees were most popular.
Since 2004, 196 organizations have hosted our students as interns. Most students graduate with two semesters of full-time professional experience through the internships.

Gerstacker students must maintain an overall GPA and a Gerstacker GPA of 3.0 or higher.
