MSc International Business programme director on the job market for graduates of this MSc


​​This article is a short interview with the former MSc International Business director, Philippe Chereau (pictured), on the likely career path for graduates of this MSc.

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.”

Q: What would be the salaries they can expect?

“Salaries vary according to the kind of companies (NGOs pay less than multinationals) and countries. An MSc International Business graduate, based in a western country and working in a large corporation, will likely earn €40 000 in the first year and could perfectly well enjoy a progression of up to 20% per year.”
Q: Where / what countries / cities would they be working?

“We currently have graduates in all major cities and business hubs in the world: London, New York, Mumbai, Dubai, Beijing, Shanghai, Geneva, Paris, Frankfurt, etc.”
