Student Outcomes & Achievements

Creighton walks the walk.

2021 Undergraduate Student Outcomes

The value of your Creighton education can be measured in many ways—in career outcomes, financial security and in a balanced, well-lived life. It all starts here.

We know the authentic value of an education can’t be measured in dollars and cents.

It’s in the ah-ha moments, the eurekas, the sweat and breakthroughs. It’s in the memory of a perfect spring afternoon and the lifelong friendship that began on a stroll through campus. It’s in the spiritual tranquility and confidence that come with discovering who you are and what you want to do.

This is the kind of education Creighton delivers. We also give our graduates the knowledge and skills they need to stand out on the job market and thrive in their careers. Visit the Career Center to read more detailed information about the College of Nursing, Heider College of Business, College of Arts and Sciences, and University-wide student outcomes.
