EEBL students and graduates will be pleased to know that the University of Rome Tor Vergata, according to the 2017 University Jobpricing Report, rates as the number two public university for producing the highest-earning graduates. In addition, over the past years, AlmaLaurea data has consistently confirmed that the average EEBL alumni monthly salary is roughly €1750. Not only do EEBL graduates encounter higher earning potential, they also have more opportunities than most graduates.
How EEBL provides a unique opportunity
Due to the complex nature of the EEBL degree, LM-90 degree in European Studies with an emphasis on economic, juridical and business disciplines, European graduates can participate in calls for selection for public administration positions, diplomacy, governmental agencies and ministries, and banks. More specifically, selections are often open to LM-90 graduates at the following Italian bodies: Banca d’Italia, MEF; Agenzia delle Entrate, AGCM, AREERA, ANAC, Consob, Consip, Equitalia, INPS, ISTAT, Corte dei Conti, Corte Suprema di Cassazione, Garant e per Protezione dei Dati Personali, IVASS, MISE.
Unlike other degree programmes, a degree in EEBL allows for entry into the workforce of private and public companies, international organisations and research institutions and universities. These three principal professional and academic sectors offer EEBL graduates a vast array of opportunities. In addition to current agreements that EEBL has with specific institutions and companies, further opportunities can be found through the Desk Imprese Office, the Tor Vergata Placement Office and the EEBL Programme Office. Additional information regarding traineeships and careers in EU institutions is also available. EEBL graduates should also keep an eye on the EEBL’s website news and EEBL’s FB page where job listings are often published. Please see below for current opportunities that are available to EEBL graduates.
