Prospects for the Future:
There was a high ratio of offers received from postgraduate schools among our graduates in recent years. Apart from the Master’s Program in Economics, graduates also took Master’s Programs in Finance and Banking, Business Management, International Trade, Tourism Business, and Information Management. Many of them went to the US and Japan for further study. The majority of them acquired several certificates or licenses before graduation to increase their competitiveness in the job market. Many of our alumni were offered teaching jobs at universities after obtaining their PhD degrees.
According to a survey conducted by Manpower Bank and published online, our graduates’ most common positions acquired are related to banking and finance, followed by sales, administration, and marketing. Our graduates’ choices of careers are in general similar to the graduates of the Department of Finance and Banking. However, the average wage gained by our graduates is higher than half of the graduates of the finance and banking departments in the country. Numerous graduates of our department have passed the exams and qualified for civil services in recent years as well.
