Graduates' employability survey

Jeune diplômé promotion 2018
Each year, the Sciences Po Graduate Employability Survey reports on the destinations of our graduates one year after graduation. The poll results offer insight into broad labour market trends, allow us to assess how employers value our degrees and inform our current and future students about the career opportunities available to them after Sciences Po.

(2016 survey: 1,447 respondents out of 1,944 graduates)
