IU Graduates are in high demand on the job market. The results of our survey of graduates speak for themselves: 94 percent of our graduates find a job within the first three months and after two years 80 percent already have management responsibilities.
These excellent results are based on the fact that, in addition to teaching professional expertise, we focus on training social and intercultural competence. When students go abroad with this knowledge they can then deal with intercultural challenges with much more ease.
The short duration of the study programme and studying in small learning groups is also advantageous for entering the professional world. These conditions are facilitative for exchange among students and proximity to faculty - essential for effective learning.
IU is proud of its graduates who can now look back on impressive careers. Their career paths are as varied as the job profiles of our degree programmes.
