MSc graduate profile

Background of graduates

Respondents came from 14 of RSM’s full-time MSc programmes. The largest group of respondents is from the MSc Supply Chain Management (13 per cent), MSc Finance & Investments (13 per cent), and MSc Business Information Management (13 per cent). These are also the 3 master programmes with most students. Response rates from all programmes were high enough to draw general conclusions.

Graduates from the MSc International Management/CEMS received a different questionnaire linked to the Financial Times ranking, which was not as detailed to be able to make specific conclusions for this programme.


Of the 588 graduates responding to the survey, 220 were female and 295 were male. Seventy-three respondents didn’t share their gender.

Where do they come from?

There were 48 nationalities among the respondents; 49.8 per cent were Dutch, 41.7 per cent came from another country in the European Economic Area (EEA), and 8.5 per cent came from outside of the EEA. Most international respondents came from Germany (19.2 per cent), Greece (3.1 per cent), and China (2.6 per cent). Eleven per cent of the graduates have more than one nationality – in the map these respondents are shown by the nationality they stated first.
