Employability

Graduates can integrate hundreds of marketing-related professions, with no restrictions in terms of company size (from start-ups to multinationals), markets (b2b, b2c, b2b2c, c2c, c2b, etc.), or industry. For its focus on individual and societal well-being, the programme also supports graduates seeking careers in industries focused on well-being (arts & culture, cosmetics, fashion, financial services, food & beverage, healthcare, insurances, pharma, sport, etc.) or public and non-profit organisations.

The most requested profiles relate to advertising and content management, branding, (digital) marketing, e-commerce, public relations, sales, and more.

Graduates can also launch their own start-up, supported by USI’s incubator.
