Career outcomes for Olivet Nazarene University’s Class of 2016 — undergraduates receiving traditional bachelor's degrees — are already exceeding the national average of all U.S. colleges and universities. Based on information from 95 percent of graduates, 92 percent are employed (full time or part time), serving in the military or missions, or in graduate school.

Several of the University’s most popular majors — communication studies, economics/finance, exercise science, intercultural studies and social work — report 100 percent career outcome rates.
