Professional and academic careers

Most MLE graduates build their professional careers on translating and applying academic knowledge acquired during the programme into practice as consultants, policy-makers, project managers and entrepreneurs. About one third of MLE alumni stays in academia as researchers, PhD students or lecturers.

Jobs in- and outside the field

A third of our graduates continues to be active in the field of tourism after graduation by working for a tourism board, a (multinational) tour agency, a consultancy firm, a university faculty, or a non-governmental organization that aims to develop tourism as a means to alleviate poverty. Two-thirds of our graduates find jobs in other sectors, such as nature conservation, international development, agriculture and marketing.
