After Graduation

The majority of graduates in International Politics and Government are likely to go on to graduate studies. They can nevertheless access the labor market directly.

Graduates may work in the analysis, communication, implementation and assessment of public policies. Their skills include examining and interpreting elements of the external environment and their changes, considering the historical, legal, economic, sociological and political landscape, including with an international perspective; applying qualitative and quantitative analysis tools suitable to supporting effective policy making and management; defining and implementing the lines of action for institutional and public communication, applying the most appropriate tools and techniques; and supporting political and administrative leadership (e.g. documentary research, writing reports and minutes, organizing meetings).

Career opportunities include work at

  • international, national, regional and local public institutions (e.g. United Nations; European Commission; national parliaments; national, regional and local government offices)
  • companies in highly regulated sectors (e.g. energy, environmental, pharmaceutical and transport)
  • research centers
  • NGOs
  • lobbying, institutional relations, and public affairs firms
  • consultancy firms
  • companies operating in multiple countries, potentially exposed to geopolitical and regulatory risks.
