In the beginning 2017, a study was carried out on the employment situation of the last class to graduate from our Master’s program. Here are the key figures:
Current employment data for our 2015 MDes graduates (bac +5):
15 months after obtaining their degree, 93% of graduates from the class of 2015 are employed.
Among these 93%, 65% work in design agencies, 20 work for a company and 15% are self-employed.
The end of studies internship (stage de pré-intégration professionnelle in their 2nd year of master) is critical since over 40% of graduates are hired by the company in which they did their internship.
Placement and professional integration of BTS apprenticeship students
The majority of graduates from BTS design de produit continue their studies on Licence professionnelle. For the class of 2015, they were 11 students out of 15 graduates.
In contrast, the BTS design d’espace think about job prospects earlier on. Professional integration is pretty much immediate after this BTS. For the class of 2015, 11 graduates out of 20 were in employment at the end of their degree.
25% of our young graduates from 2016 are pursuing international careers. They have headed for 8 destinations: the United States, China, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore.
This openness to the international market can be explained by several factors: the opportunity to study MDes Transcultural Design in China or in India, the obligation for students in their MDes program first year to follow a semester or an internship abroad in a foreign company or agency.
We also notice that one year after graduating, 29% of graduates are still abroad, 26% are employed in the West of France, 40% in Île de France and 34% in the other regions of France.
