Graduate Employment Outcomes

The Office for Alumni Affairs surveys our most recent graduates every year. The information presented in the report below is a summary of the post-graduation outcomes for survey respondents six months after graduation. The report below includes the Class of:

  • 2017 (November 2016, March 2017 and May 2017)
  • 2018 (November 2017, March 2018, and May 2018)

When reviewing this information, keep in mind:

  • Several of our programs, most notably our MPH program, have changed over the past few years and the current composition of students is slightly different than the students surveyed in the previous Classes.
  • The MPH-65 program began in September 2016 (replacing a two year master degree) and these graduates are not included in the Class of 2017 data. The first cohort of graduates is the Class of 2018.
  • Prior education, training and interests play a significant role in the types of positions our recent graduates seek and obtain. Many of our students come to Harvard Chan with prior professional degrees, including medical degrees, and many have prior professional experience, some more extensive than others. Some students want to use their Harvard Chan education to expand their current roles and others want to completely change the direction of their career.
  • Some of the survey respondents did not include all of the information requested in the survey, for example, they may have indicated they are employed but did not include information about their employer and therefore some of the employer information is incomplete.
