Career Prospects

A PMP graduate will be well equipped to gain access, both in Switzerland and abroad, to positions of responsibility in public administration (federal, cantonal and local), or in international as well as private non-profit organisations. PMP-USI's specialization in Public Communication and Management prepares students for professions which are of primary importance in these sectors. It is expected that the PMP Master's degree will in a relatively short time become the main gateway for a large segment of the Swiss civil service: for this reason, it enjoys the support of both federal and inter-cantonal authorities.
