Each year, Berklee’s Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA) connect with every student graduating from Berklee College of Music, the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, and Berklee Online for the Undergraduate Exit Survey to learn their individual experiences at Berklee and the plans they'll take with them into their careers and lives.
n addition to 97% overall satisfaction, Berklee Online grads reported 97% satisfaction with their programs of study, 96% reported satisfaction with their professors, and 94% satisfaction with their courses.
The Berklee Online class of 2018 includes students from Afghanistan, Australia, Canada, Chile, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, and the United States. Of the respondents, 79% are employed, self-employed, in an internship, or accepted/enrolled in continuing education. Of those already working, 78%t are employed in the entertainment industry; the most common areas of employment are recording, live music, education, and technology.
Berklee College of Music reports the largest percentage of students entering internships, Boston Conservatory at Berklee reports the largest percentage of students pursuing continuing education, and Berklee Online reports the largest percentage of students who are employed or self employed.
Disclosure: I've taught at Berklee Online for the last several years and it continues to be an incredibly rewarding experience to help students find their way as creators and music industry professionals.
