After Graduation

Weinberg College graduates succeed. And they succeed everywhere, from business to the creative arts, from medicine to public service, from science and technology to education and the nonprofit realm. 

Our students develop not just a skillset, but a mindset. They’re living proof that a rigorous, well-rounded education in the arts and sciences—with plenty of reading, writing, projects, presentations, and problem sets—provides the groundwork for success. Our graduates’ stories speak for themselves.


Weinberg College students are prepared to enter the workforce and graduate study, thanks to research-oriented classes, credit-bearing internships, field-study experiences, and study abroad. The College's career preparation resources, such as our Professional Linkage seminars, bridge the gap between academic training and real-word experience.

Fields of EmploymentFields of study chart

More than 80 percent of Weinberg College graduates eventually undertake graduate or professional study. They are well-prepared: 82 percent of Northwestern graduates who applied to medical schools were accepted. Graduates who applied to business, dental, or law school all enjoyed acceptance rates well above the national average.

Where they go

Our students have gone on to become leaders in business, government, social services, law, science, education, medicine, media, and the performing arts.
