Doctoral Student Exit Survey

Recent MIT Doctoral Student Exit Surveys merge the Survey of Earned Doctorates with key AAUDE evaluation questions (e.g., program rating) and key Global Education and Career Development Center questions (e.g., employment and salary). In doing so, doctoral students now answer these questions once, rather than on three separate surveys. The survey asks graduating doctoral students about their experiences at MIT, financial support and debt, activities while in graduate school, plans after graduation, and their job search.
