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, 2010-2023

The Department of Economics reviewed data from the 2010-2023 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 268 out of 399 alumni who obtained a graduate degree (Graduate Diploma, MA, or PhD) from our department between 2010 and 2023.  

  • The private sector is the most represented amongst our alumni group, with 63.43% reporting working in a privately owned company: banking, higher education, and IT services/online solutions are the most frequent.
  • Analytics represents 39.71% 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).
  • 47% of the graduate alumni group still report living in the Greater Montreal area. In total, 72.28% live in Canada.
  • 46.67% of our PhD alumni report being employed or active in higher education: 12 have a teaching role, one identifies as a researcher, and one as a student.
  • 17 of the 29 graduate alumni working in government are employed by the Government of Canada.
