The School of Public Administration and Development Economics is keen to reach out to graduates across the Communications Media scene and encourage a relationship with the School. We are also keen to keep track of developments concerning the numbers and proportions of graduates working in different sectors (governmental, non-governmental, or entrepreneurial) and the proportion of those seeking employment, those who wish to continue post-graduate studies, and those who have been accepted by programs at international universities. We also invite feedback from graduates on the development of their professional or academic circumstances. This forms a key basis for developing our intellectual and academic orientation towards labor market demand.

The table below shows the number of graduates and the percentage of those working in different sectors:
