The interdisciplinary nature of ES, combined with your own choices for specialisation, electives and minors opens up a wide range of options when you graduate. Most graduates pursue careers in management, marketing, communications, public relations or policy advice in political organisations, both in non-profit organisations or business. However, a growing number of ES alumni are also enrolling on master’s programmes to take their studies to the next level.
ES prepares you for a wide range of jobs, giving you an advantage in a labour market, which is in dire need of interdisciplinary professionals skilled at working in an international environment. Whether you’re looking to change the world through politics or an NGO, or make it big in business, ES will get you started. You might become a lobbyist, trying to stimulate change in the European Parliament, or you could work for one of the organisations and institutions that are trying to influence. You could fundraise for a non-profit organisation or do social media marketing for a private business. Once you graduate from ES, you’ll be ready for just about anything and you’ll have the skills to adapt to a rapidly changing labour market.

Outside the Netherlands, ES students following a master after graduation have gone on to study at places like Coventry University, King’s College, the College of Europe, the London School of Economics, Sciences Po Lille, Johns Hopkins and many more. You should note that some universities in the Netherlands require you to follow a pre-master course after graduating from THUAS. There are, of course, exceptions, so make sure you check the entry requirements for each master programme carefully.
