Employment after LUC

As your major strongly influences the breadth of your academic knowledge, it is impossible to pinpoint a typical LUC career. Fields vary per major and even within the major our alumni choose very divergent paths. To give you a sense of what you can expect, we selected a couple of current jobs or our alumni per major.

LUC alumni are socially responsible and civically responsive leaders, qualities which make them well placed to pursue selective internships and careers. Provided with an inter-disciplinary background and a solid skillset, opportunities for our alumni are plentiful. Many of our alumni find employment in the private sector, like the jobs in banking, law firms or consultancy businesses. Others pursue careers within the non-profit sector, most notably within government agencies, international organisations or research and think tanks.
