A survey was conducted from IBC Alumni members in an effort to measure the personal and professional impact from the organization.
The experience of IBC participation provides a base from which alumni can potentially find continued growth even after graduation and entering the workforce. The strength of this organization is in its alumni base – strong employees, leaders, and innovators that are willing to reach back to the experience they had while in IBC. As they pull from this base, they will find the potential for continued growth through mentorship, networking, and continued education from the IBC alumni network and the organization as its stands currently.

Among those surveyed who have already started in their careers, some included information on their starting salaries. Taking those numbers and comparing them with the averages reported on different UIUC college websites and also comparing them with the averages reported by Forbes, IBC alumni make, on average, more than non-IBC alumni of UIUC and the national average of graduates from a similar major. The metrics seen in the top graph are indicative of undergraduates only, but since over half of IBC participants are undergraduates, this is a very important data point to consider.
