After your studies
There is a big demand for highly trained information experts who can bridge the gap between the builders and the users of IT to ensure good, user-friendly technology that meets an organisation's needs. Many of our students are offered jobs even before they graduate. Most go into industry, banking and insurance, or public-sector organisations such as schools and hospitals.
- Chief Information Officer
- Project manager
- ICT specialist
- Privacy Officer
Students with this Master’s degree could think of positions as consultants, project managers or ICT specialists. More and more companies are adding the position of Chief Information Officer (CIO) to their board of directors and they are increasingly legally obliged to have a Privacy Officer. This Master’s programme is definitely a good stepping stone for reaching these kind of positions in your future career.
Your own company
Some students develop their own ideas and innovations while taking part in this Master’s programme. They see what is offered, understand what is lacking, and realise where possibilities lie. In Nijmegen there are plenty of opportunities for those wanting to start their own business. For example, the Mercator Incubator(verwijst naar een andere website) could help students with a good business plan by giving advice or even by offering affordable accommodation and other facilities for the first year or two of setting up a company.
Put your studies to work!
To prepare you for finding a job, Radboud University offers various forms of job market orientation, so that you can prepare for your future during your studies. Career Service Science assists students and young alumni with their journey into the job market.

Furthermore, students organise the BBB Career Event each year, the ideal place for students and employers to meet.
Why stop learning after graduation?
In order to keep pace with the rapid progress in our current society, you must continue to work on your development even after getting a degree. This allows you to keep up with societal change and make a worthwhile contribution to both your personal development and to wider society. For any questions regarding this lifelong development, Radboud Academy is pleased to help you. So, are you looking to deepen your knowledge after obtaining a Master’s degree? Then a post-master might be something for you. Or do you want to learn to translate your academic skills into an actual job? Then you can participate in our Young Professional Programme after your Master's (in Dutch).
