Forum 035
The 2015 survey on the employability of recent Sciences Po graduates confirms that a Sciences Po diploma remains a strong asset for quickly entering the labour market. Fifteen months after their graduation in June 2014 the overall rate of employment was 95% : more Sciences Po graduates had started work and had found their first job more quickly.

5 figures to keep in mind :

  • 75% of graduates chose to enter the labour market

  • 38% work outside France
  • 73% of working graduates are employed in the private sector
  • Average gross annual salary is €37k

Higher employment rates and shorter periods before employment

Of those students who decided to integrate the labour market, 88.8% are working while 11.2% are seeking employment. We should note that 53.7% of respondents seeking employment have already had a job since they left Sciences Po, taking the employment rate to 95%.

Periods before employment are shorter than for the previous year: 87% of graduates found a job in less than 6 months compared with 81% in 2014.

The salaries of Sciences Po graduates remain high

Based on 660 respondents, average gross annual earnings were €37,266.

Many graduates start their careers abroad

38% of the graduates surveyed work outside France : 18% of graduates work in Africa, 17% in Asia-Oceania, 9% in North America and 6% in South an Central America.

Still a wide variety of jobs, with those in the private sector continuing to grow

On the whole, jobs are distributed among very different business sectors. 73% of graduates in work are employed in the private sector, 7.6% in an international organisation or European institution and 18.4% in the public sector.

In line with the diversity of the Master's programmes on offer at Sciences Po, graduates’ professions remain varied within such sectors as Auditing, Public Administration, Banking, Finance, Industry, Energy, Marketing, Communication, NGOs, International Organisations, Journalism, Education, Research, Urban design, Townplanning,Distribution, Arts, Law etc.
