MSc Graduate Profile

MSc Graduate Profile

Who are our graduates?

The average age at graduation from one of RSM’s MSc programmes in 2011 was 25; similar to last year most students were aged between 22 and 28. Of those 310 graduates responding to the survey, about 40% were female and 60% were male. We can say from our earlier records that the Grade Point Average (GPA) of respondents in this survey does not differ greatly from the profile of RSM graduates in 2011.

Different Master programmes

Where do they come from?

There were 35 different nationalities among the respondents to the 2012 survey; 60% were Dutch, 24% came from the European Economic Area (EEA), which is nearly 10% more than the year before, and 16 % came from outside the EEA. Echoing the 2011 survey, most international students came from Germany (10%), then Bulgaria (4.5%), China (2.6%) and Greece (2.6%).

Country of origin of our MSc graduates


The number of international respondents has risen by 13% compared to the 2011 survey and is now 40%. The international student population at RSM as a whole – across all programmes and among all graduates – is about 30%. International students are therefore better represented in this survey of MSc graduates than Dutch students.
