What is a Career Outcome Rate?

How do we gather our Career Outcome Data? 

Fontbonne University conducts ongoing Alumni surveys and reports its finding annually using the National Association of Colleges and Employers First Destination reporting methods NACE. The results are compiled into an annual report for the fiscal year.  Fontbonne Universities’ primary research methods include a survey of graduates administered via electronic forms at the commencement ceremonies, student emails, Handshake, Faculty Outreach, and Linked In.
