10,000 PhDs Project

Employed and Engaged: Career Outcomes of Our PhD Graduates, 2000-2015

The School of Graduate Studies is excited to share the results of the 10,000 PhDs Project, which used Internet searches of open-access data sources such as official university and company websites to determine the current and/or first (2016) employment status of the 10,886 PhDs who graduated from U of T between 2000 and 2015 in all disciplines. The study successfully located 88% of PhD graduates.

Where are U of T’s PhDs employed? From Professor to CEO, Assistant Deputy Minister to Creative Director, they are working in all sectors of society and in 97 countries around the world.
