The descriptive research design is utilized in tracing 2668 USPian alumni with a success rate of 12.7% or 340 actual alumni response. Based on the general findings of the study, the majority of the USPian alumni are working in line with the degree they earned at the University and were mostly Philippine-based. The minority are spread out to 15 foreign countries: Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Japan, Jeddah, KSA, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Qatar, Singapore, UAE, UK, and the USA.
