Regarding the socio-professional profile, 92% of degree holders joined private companies (especially multi-national ones) carrying out job responsibilities closely linked to their academic education. In fact, in 84.8% of the cases, the jobs were related to their degree studies. The highest job placement rates correspond to advising, consultancy, judiciary, industry, manufacturing, and logistics services. As for salary, more than half of the graduates earn a monthly net income of more than 1,200 euros.  

The degree of satisfaction with the University, in general terms, is very high.  From a sample of 1,077 degree holders from 24 Bachelor’s degree and 6 dual degree programs, 93% would choose UC3M again for pursuing their studies, with 96% recommending this institution. The University’s prestige, and the complementary activities and resources available to students, are the main advantages for those surveyed.

UC3M considers the job placement of its graduates to be one of its priority strategic lines and collaborates with over 6,000 companies.  Its Servicio de Orientación y Empleo  foments access to the job market and employment of graduates through different internship programs, its job bank and the Foroempleo (First Job Fair).
