MIA, what next? The MIA programme opens up a wide range of careers and professional activities. Career prospects Our graduates leave St.Gallen with the requisite knowledge, but also with the appropriate conceptual and methodological tools to take on complexity. More particularly, they can: access quantitative and qualitative data; research and write policy memos, proposals, and other key documents; track and explain legislative and public policy issues; conduct country and market analyses; communicate effectively across cultures and languages. Broad range of careers Statistics show that the MIA programme has invariably lived up to its main promise of bringing forth broadly trained, flexible generalists who find employment across the board – and across the globe. On the private sector side, they go on to work in banking and financial institutions, for insurance companies, consultancies and other multinational corporations. On the public sector side, they are employed by federal, state and local government, development agencies, and international organisations. The variety of careers as well as feedback from our alumni clearly demonstrate the value of a generalist degree.
