International Relations, Master

Job and career

Students from the IR programme find jobs in many different sectors. The private sector is an important job market where International Relations graduates work on issues related to for instance international markets, sustainability, gender policies, and lobbying. Many graduates are also employed in public administration on both a national and regional level as well as in consulates and embassies around the globe. International organisations like the UN and the EU are also important career goals for our graduates, who often start their international careers in NGO’s and civil society organizations. For some students it may lead to PhD studies or a career in teaching and research.
