The career prospects for our alumni are good. A recent study (2017) shows that graduates who started looking for a job immediately after graduation have found a suitable job within two to three months (n=231).

Because of the combination of marketing and health communication and the rapid developments in these fields, the career opportunities are broad. Recent graduates are now active in the development and management of communication strategies, the evaluation of advertising and health campaigns, or the conduct of media and market research within profit or non-profit organisations. Think of jobs at:

  • Advertising agencies
  • Research companies
  • Government bodies
  • Health institutions
  • Charities or funds
  • Private sector corporations
  • Many other organisations.
