Q: What jobs can graduates of your MSc expect to get in one / three / five / ten years’ time?

“On graduating, MSc International Business graduates find jobs working in an international environment, the majorit​​​​​​​y as project managers, international sales, consultants, product marketers, and business developers within international corporations or exporting SMEs. Some, a growing proportion, choose to work in international NGOs.

Within three to five years, they get management positions such as head of a new subsidiary, international marketing manager, sales manager.”
