Explore Life After CMU

Your success is our number one priority at CMU. From day one until graduation, we'll work closely with you, helping you identify your academic and career goals, and shape a path to successfully achieve them.

Success Ahead

More than 90 percent of CMU-CLAS students are employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation. Studies indicate today’s students will change careers on average seven times – many into jobs that haven’t even been created. You will learn more than how to make a living; you will learn how to live a life.

Many employers actively seek out Central graduates, because they enter the workforce well-prepared to be successful from Day 1.
