Alumni survey Master's level
In 2021, the Department of Business Studies conducted an alumni survey among those who had finished their education on one of our Master's Programmes, during the period autumn 2016 to sprin 2020. The Programmes included in the survey were the Master's Programme in Business and Management, the Master's Programme in Accounting and Financial Management, the Master's Programme in Sustainable Management, and the Master's Programme in Entrepreneurship. The results show that the students, to a high degree, would recommend the Programme to others.
A degree in Business Studies gives you a job
Within 6 months after finishing their education, 83 % of our former students had gotten a job, for which their academic education was relevant. Many of our alumni work with different Business services, such as accountancy, PR, advertising, or as consultants or advisors. It is common for our former students to work within the Bank and Finance sector.
Ways to get a job
- Companies website
- Through friends/acquaintances
- Recruitment firms
- Jobs before/during studies
During job interviews, our alumni found it important to be able to show their personal characteristics. It was an advantage to be able to show that they had good cooperation skills, were good at problem solving and could communicate well. To have previous work experience within the same field was another advantage.
- Project manager
Many of our alumni work abroad after finishing their Master's studies. Those who stay in Sweden mainly work in the Stockholm area. A majority work at enterprises with more than 250 employees.
Parts of the Master's Programmes that was highly appreciated was how business cases were incorporated in the education, that they got to develop and improve their analytical and critical point of views, and how they got to work on their problem solving skills.
