Discover career progression of top Swiss courses

My future career

Before deciding on the course that you would like to enrol in, you should understand the career progression of the course. Why? Imagine that you choose to study Construction Management, which may seem appealing from a student perspective – but the reality of being outdoors regularly in a tropical country like Malaysia may not be your dream job. Or imagine choosing Medicine as a course of study, but not knowing enough about what it’s like to be a medical doctor – you don’t want to quit when it’s too late.

MABECS Global consultants have put together a few useful references that may help you understand your future career better. We must admit that it does not guarantee your future success, but it would help you to make a more discerning choice!

Read on to find where you belong:

1. “I have no idea which course I should study or what I’d like to work as”

If you’re completely clueless on what you want to study or what you’d like to work as in the future, check out Prospects, the UK’s biggest graduate careers website. With over 40 years of experience, Prospects uses its unique insight into what graduates do, where they go and what their motivations are to guide and inspire career choices throughout the student journey.1

If you’re going to focus purely on studying first, here are some useful links on courses in demand in Switzerland (under ‘Skills Shortages’) and critical occupations list in Malaysia. For Malaysia, the critical courses in demand based on the study by TalentCorp in 2019/2020 are Engineering, Computer Science, Business, Agriculture, Actuarial Science, Chemistry, Occupational Safety and Health, Graphic and Multimedia Design, Medicine, as well as Logistics and Supply Chain.

2. “I have decided on some courses I am interested in”

Now that you have decided on some courses that you are interested in, your next step is a lot more straightforward. If you are considering a career in Switzerland after your graduation, check out ‘Working in Switzerland’ by Prospects, the UK’s biggest graduate careers website.

Prospects also has a section to guide you into understanding what you can do with your degree. For example, if you study a degree in Hospitality Management, the website shows you jobs directly related to your degree as well as other options that may not be usually considered. For example, jobs directly related to a Hospitality Management degree include Hotel Manager, Chef, and Restaurant Manager; whereas other options that are not usually considered would include Marketing Executive, Retail Manager, and Fire Risk Assessor. What many people may not know is that a Hospitality Management degree in Switzerland has a strong business focus which means that it opens doors to many business-related careers, including being in Business Development roles.

For a more interactive experience, you can also take the Job Match quiz that helps you take the first step into finding the career for you.
