Employment and professional opportunities are wide thanks to the multidisciplinary training received.
The employment of graduates concerns private and public spheres, although in recent years there has been a greater absorption capacity in the private sector, particularly concerning the world of NGOs.
Precisely, the multidisciplinary approach guarantees a high level of adaptability to the variety of professional figures required by the labor market.
The course opens to a plurality of professional opportunities: competitions for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, other international careers, research in public and private structures (universities, international bodies, bank offices, etc.), as well as Italian and European administrative institutions.
The knowledge of an oriental language is an asset in view of these professional opportunities.
