Labour Market Prospects

The logical next step for a graduate of an academic Bachelor programme is to continue with an academic Master. The first group of ‘International Leisure Studies’ students graduated in 2012, and since then ILS graduates have been accepted into Masters’ programmes on, for instance, leisure and tourism, cultural management, human resource management and marketing and communication. In addition, ILS graduates are ideally positioned to enter a career in research, policy development in sports or the cultural sector and consultancy on strategic issues in the public sector.
