Career opportunities

A comprehensive LinkedIn research published in November 2014 showed that our graduates are employed in a wide variety of companies and business-related professions worldwide, including those following entrepreneurial and start-up career paths. Over 800 unique LinkedIn profiles were assessed, representing IBS alumni currently located in over 60 different countries. Popular areas of activity were business development, project management, finance and accounting and sales and marketing. In addition, many alumni have established their own company or consultancy or have top management positions. The research confirmed that an IBS graduate can forge a successful career and has a high value within both the job market and society as a whole. Among the array of global companies listed in the research, IBS alumni are employed by Deloitte, Google, Philips and Unilever.
