Our more than 100,000 successful alumni include successful CEOs, journalists, judges, prominent attorneys, healthcare leaders, CFOs, school superintendents, entrepreneurs, authors, researchers, diplomats and doctors. But, most important, they are using their Seton Hall education to make a difference in the world. They are Fulbright, Rhodes, Truman, Pickering and Marshall scholars. They’re leading the way in Fortune 500 companies and making their marks on Wall Street; the United Nations; and in classrooms, hospitals and boardrooms across the country. They have also served our nation as elected officials — in Washington, D.C., in Trenton and in hundreds of town halls throughout the country. In fact, in New Jersey alone, 18 percent of the state’s Assembly and Senate members hold Seton Hall degrees.

More than 1,000 alumni serve in executive positions as CEOs, CFOs, CCOs and COOs at places like Oppenheimer & Co., the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, Univision and Crum & Forster. They have also served our nation as elected officials — in Washington, D.C., in Trenton and in hundreds of town halls throughout the country. Many of our alumni choose to pursue a deeper knowledge related to their respective fields and go on to graduate schools to pursue a master’s degree or Ph.D., or to medical, dental and law schools for a more specialized education. Seton Hall graduates make a name for themselves at top graduate schools across the country, including Seton Hall, Harvard, Columbia, Georgetown, Tufts, Johns Hopkins, Oxford, New York University and the University of Pennsylvania. Seton Hall alumni also serve as mentors to our current students. They’re in the trenches in the real world — working at the United Nations, Morgan
Stanley, American Express, Madison Square Garden, Panasonic, the F.B.I., Nissan, Johnson & Johnson, Prudential, Goldman Sachs, CNN, NBC and SiriusXM Satellite Radio, to name a few — so they know exactly what’s needed for career success. As a student here, you’ll have regular contact with our alumni network; they will guide you in your career endeavors, help you make important connections as you build your resume and advise you as you choose internships and ultimately a full-time job. Many of our alumni also recruit Seton Hall students for internships and full-time work after graduation.
t’s such a wonderful gift to have gone to Seton Hall. The University opened up the world to me; it truly changed my life. I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing today, and I wouldn’t have the happiness that I have in my life without Seton Hall. I think a Seton Hall student can bring so many things to a company such as the one I worked for, American Express. Seton Hall students have great talent and possess an integrity and depth of values that would benefit any company.” www.shu.edu/go/leaders
