Employability

We have implemented a survey about employability of WOP-P Master alumni. A total of 112 alumni, from 35 countries (Europe, North-America, Africa, South-America, Asia, and Middle East), participated voluntarily. Results are very illustrative taking into account that an important number of participants have finished the WOP-P Master recently. More than 80% are employed or self-employed (only 8% are now looking for a job); more than 60% spent less than 3 months to find the first job after graduation; most of them consider that the contents of the WOP-P Master are very related (47,8%) or quite related (31,1%) with their jobs; and more than 90% are quite or very satisfied with the job. The WOP-P Master permits two general employability tracks: a) as a practitioner; and b) as a researcher (e.g., continuing in a PhD programme). However, they are not separate areas. Although roles are different for practitioners vs. researchers, mutual interaction is necessary. The compulsory Practicum forces the student to manage real situations in organizational life under a scheme of supervision where he/she has the support of both academic and in-company tutors who check and follow the acquisition of competences established in the WOP-P Master. Regarding the research training, a process of simulation of submission of papers to peer-review journals is implemented for the WOP-P Master students because this is a critical competence for the research employability track (PhD programmes and research contracts).
