California business magazine highlights St. Olaf’s career data

Graduation2014Ceremony425x300“Today’s parents and students are asking harder questions about their return on investment,” a recent story in Comstock’s magazine titled “Attention College Shoppers” points out.

And, the California business publication notes, St. Olaf College provides clear answers through “a searchable database on its website that gives fine-grained detail about the first place students land after graduating.”

That information, the story says, “could sway college-shopping students and parents curious about what the market might hold if they pick St. Olaf and choose that major.”

The database is part of the college’s Outcomes initiative, which aims to clearly outline the return on investing in a St. Olaf education.

The initiative has garnered the attention of USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, and the Hechinger Report.
