Graduate Outcomes

95% of Master of Science in Technology Innovation graduates are working in a related field within six months and are currently employed around the world.

MSTI graduates report an average salary of around $124,000 after graduation.

As part of the GIX dedication to supporting students and their future success, we have invested heavily into helping our graduates secure jobs following graduation. While completing the MSTI or Dual Degree programs, students receive career development advising, attend professional panels, and employer information sessions that expose them to a wide range of technology companies and technical professionals. GIX graduates have accepted jobs in a variety of roles in companies ranging from  large global corporations to small startups around the world.

GIX was very similar to what you’ll do at a tech company. It’s easy to communicate that to a recruiter and it’s clear to them that you know how to do things right.
