Our Alumni are Changing the World

Graduates from AUP's master’s programs have made and continue to make waves in the real world. Living and working in over 50 countries worldwide, they have landed impressive, hard-to-get jobs or continued their education at distinguished graduate and PhD programs in their fields. We hear from our alumni about their career progress in our three-year alumni surveys. The data below represents a 45% response rate to AUP's Spring 2016 "Next Destinations" survey from the graduating classes of 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Successful Graduate Alumni


Graduate alumni employed or pursuing further education within a year
Close to nine out of ten graduate alumni who graduated from AUP during the years 2013–15 had found a job, become entrepreneurs or pursued additional educational routes within one year of graduation. Our graduate programs provide an important mix of academic excellence and exposure to practical knowledge that prepares our graduates to enter the international employment market after graduation. 


Pursuing an International Career

More than eight out of ten graduate alumni report that they have an international element in their career, ranging from working for an international company to working in a language other than their own. The international exposure that AUP offers during its graduate programs, through participation in study trips and intensive work with our dedicated international partners, shapes our graduates to be excellent candidates for employment at international corporations, globally active NGOs and other multinational entities across the globe.
