Favourable labour market for strategic communication graduates

A new alumni survey shows that almost 9 out of 10 students who studied strategic communication at Lund University have a job six months after graduating. Moreover, one third already have a job offer before they finish their studies.

The strategic communication programmes are offered by the Department of Strategic Communication at Campus Helsingborg. The first degree programme started here 7 years ago.

A survey of the outcomes for graduates from the programme in the past three years shows that 72 per cent are employed and 4 per cent are self-employed. Only 4 per cent are unemployed while the remainder are either studying, doing internships or on parental leave.

“It is gratifying to see that our students find jobs as easily as graduates from law, economics and computer science, says Charlotte Simonsson, head of the Department of Strategic Communication.

56 per cent of those who are employed have jobs in the private sector, 29 per cent in the public sector and the remaining 15 per cent within not-for-profit organisations, etc. Almost 9 out of 10 had worked in the field of communication with job titles such as communications officer, marketing assistant, PR consultant, web editor, project manager and head of communications.
