Career outcomes and efforts receive recognition

Binghamton University has long been recognized as a premier public institution, and we know that the quality of our education, programs and services have continuously produced graduates who are well prepared for post-college pursuits. Our efforts and outcomes have been recognized in the annual Princeton Review rankings, where we notably placed in the top 20 for best value public colleges and #18 in best career placement for public institutions. This is a slight jump from our place in last year’s rankings.

Additionally, the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development was awarded with the Founder’s Award for Innovation at the EY Global Career Services Summit for our career cluster model. The Fleishman Center uses the UConnect platform to group students into one of seven clusters as a mechanism to deliver personalized career content based on interests. These clusters organize event information, job and internship postings, blogs and other resources for different major and career pools. Joining one or more clusters opts students into a weekly newsletter that sends highlights and important information directly to their inbox. Students’ use of the platform increased 50% between 2020 and 2021, which can be attributed to the platform’s ease of use and students recognizing the value of tailored career content. The Fleishman Center was selected for this award from within a group of the most respected career operations from around the world, which is an impressive distinction that speaks to the caliber of Binghamton University and our dedication to finding innovative methods to support students.
