What can you do with an International Affairs degree?
A degree in International Affairs prepares one to solve problems through diplomacy, defense and development. It provides you the tools to help manufacturers, communication firms, consultants, energy companies and NGOs to move products and ideas around the world. In the study of International Affairs our students find meaningful careers across all sectors.
Our graduates leave St.Gallen with the requisite knowledge, but also with the appropriate conceptual and methodological tools to take on complexity. More particularly, they can:
- access quantitative & qualitative data
- research & write policy memos, proposals and other key documents
- track and explain legislative & public policy issues
- conduct country & market analyses
- communicate effectively across cultures & languages
Broad range of careers
Statistics show that the MIA programme has invariably lived up to its main promise of bringing forth broadly trained, flexible generalists who find employment across the board – and across the globe. On the private sector side, they go on to work in banking and financial institutions, for insurance companies, consultancies and other multinational corporations. On the public sector side, they are employed by federal, state and local government, development agencies, and international organisations. The variety of careers as well as feedback from our alumni clearly demonstrate the value of a generalist degree.
