The event was a great success and gave students another opportunity to connect with potential future employers and key figures across a variety of industries. 

Helping our students to get ahead 

Every year, our students praise the event and its participants for allowing them to learn more about the opportunities available after graduation, important deadlines, top tips for applications, and more. 

“Especially as a student who comes from a different continent altogether, it’s a very very interesting day for me because I’m able to explore and understand the opportunities available.” Anagha Santhosh, BSE Master’s student

“What Career Day has shown me is that I can work in Economic Consulting for example but still work on topics such as educational policy or work for an international organization, so it’s kind of opened my eyes to that.” David H. Frankel, BSE Master’s student

What makes BSE students stand out?  

Students from BSE are recognized for their strong work ethic, talent and soft skills. 

“From the meetings that we’ve had it seems like they’re really good communicators, driven and want to change something. These are the kind of people we are looking for because they fit our culture.” Andreas Michalovcik, Project Manager at TWS Partners

BSE Career Services department organizes several events throughout the year to support Master's students' career development and help prepare them for a successful job search. The department will hold another Career Day focusing on Data Science in February 2024.
