MW Alumni Analysis

Recommended Posts

Thought this data was pretty cool. Linkedin lists where the most alumni are located along with the most common employers. Obviously this isn't complete data as it will include the alumni with linkedin profiles, but still gives a pretty good idea.

I've included the total number of alumni, along with the top 5 markets, and the top 5 employers (not including the universities themselves).

1. We should probably try to get a bowl game in the bay area again, it is one of the top destinations for grads of all schools except Boise, Air Force and Wyoming.

2. Maybe Stunner isn't wrong when he calls USU an LDS university. Their top employers seem to fit that narrative.

It’s more reason to boot Wyoming from the MW.

I can see why you would want that.  I mean getting owned on the field year after year by a school from a smaller state, a school with a smaller enrollment and fewer alumni Linkedin accounts must really challenge your whole #superiorlifestyle theory.

You have a typo there.  You left a couple of zeros off of the Denver alumni for CSU.

I have a question re. the Wyo data.  Does the state really consider inmates, employees??

THAT would be a better question for UNLV. Seems like almost half the Las Vegas City Council and Clark County Commission wound up as felons between '95 and '10...

A few years ago, CSEwe employers would have included al-Qaeda...
