Alumni

Since 2007, more than 700 students have successfully graduated from the EMGS programme. Alumni of global studies are especially successful on the labour market because they are trained to think outside of the box. They are sought after by employers owing to their in-depth knowledge of a globalized world as well as their overall flexibility gained during their individual student mobility tracks.
A considerable number of the alumni has chosen an academic career by continuing their academic education with a PhD. First ideas for the topic of their PhD dissertations have been, in many cases, developed during the master’s programme. Alumni who pursue a professional career outside academia are mostly working in the private sector, in public service, or NGOs.
