Research amongst graduates shows that professional prospects are good. Approximately 95% of students have jobs within six months of graduating. The expectation is that demand for academically-trained HR managers will continue to increase in the future. This is suggested by international labor market barometers in specialist magazines.
A career as an HR professional within local or national government, non-profit organizations or in (inter)national businesses will be a perfect follow-up to your study. Obviously, you will not begin your career immediately as a Human Resources Director! Many graduates start in an operational role, e.g. as an HR assistant, a junior policy adviser or a staff officer specializing in training or recruitment and selection. However, experience shows that graduates progress quickly in their careers to roles such as the Head of HR, consultant, strategic HR adviser or general management roles. An academic career as a researcher is also possible.
Employers of all types are very satisfied with the quality of the program. The academic program, combined with a practical orientation, gives you a head start in the labor market. During your studies, you will gain an in-depth knowledge of companies and get involved in (inter)national research and current HR issues. You will also work on your personal skills. This combination ensures that you will quickly find your place in professional practice when you graduate.
