Career prospects

With digitalisation extending to all sectors of our environment (public administration, insurance, audiovisual media, banks, publishing, lawyers’ offices), Switzerland once again leads in information technologies. Many jobs are now created by information technologies in the public administration and in the operational activities of multinationals, or in the creation of start-ups.

Moreover, university studies develop, in addition to specific academic skills, a great many transverse skills such as: oral and written communication, critical, analytical and summarising faculties, abilities in research, and so on. This panoply of skills, combined with specialist knowledge acquired in the course of studies, is excellent preparation for a wide range of employment opportunities.

Alumni move into a wide variety of roles, for example as an analyst at Kudelski Security.
