Career prospects

Job opportunities

Almost all CME students find work within three months of graduating. CME graduates typically find positions as management trainees at large companies within the building industry, but they work in other sectors as well. Alumni work in a great variety of jobs in planning, engineering and management. For example, at multinationals such as Shell and KPN, and for consultancy firms such as McKinsey, but most of them work for large national and international engineering firms such as Van Oort, Royal Haskoning DHV, Heijmans, PRC, Ballast Nedam and BAM. CME graduates are equally at ease speaking to technical experts and engineers and to management, and often work in interdisciplinary environments. They have a systematic approach to problem solving, think analytically, discern the connections between the technical and social aspects of a situation, and are adept at recognizing common patterns that link issues across domain boundaries. They have thorough knowledge of technology and the building industry and analytics skill to perform analyses of management processes.
