Graduate student alumni

Our MA alumni find positions at corporations, government organizations, in the private sector and in financial institutions as economic analysts, insurance advisors, financial managers, corporate economists and project managers, among others. Some find jobs in the education sector as cégep teachers. Our PhD students are placed in academic and research jobs at universities, corporations, and the financial sector, or work as senior analysts for a government agency.    

Alumni placement data, 2010-2021

The Department of Economics reviewed data from the 2010-2021 alumni, reaching out on LinkedIn to increase the number of connections to our Alumni group and to get a sense of the professional roles our alumni have attained so far. We managed to collect data on 210 out of 345 alumni who obtained a graduate degree (Graduate Diploma, MA, or PhD) from our department between 2010 and 2021.  

  • The private sector is the most represented amongst our group, with 62.86% reporting working in a privately owned company: banking, investment, and IT services/online solutions are the most frequent.
  • Analytics represents 42% of the occupation type for our graduate alumni. This grouping includes jobs such as data scientist/analyst and policy analyst in a variety of industry sectors (banking and finance being the most common).
  • More than half of the graduate alumni group still report living in the Greater Montreal area.
  • A majority (53.8%) of our PhD alumni report being employed or active in higher education: 11 have a teaching role, 2 identify as researchers, and 2 as students.
  • 17 of the 29 graduate alumni working in government are employed by the Government of Canada.
