Careers in Research

Tuesday, May 23, 2017, 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Research is a broad field encompassing careers in various sectors, from demographic data to consumer behaviors, from political research to financial analysis. While a lage number of our graduates apply research in their work, according to LinkedIn, 10% of our them consider research as their primary work function in their current job. Be it academic, commercial, political, social, or scientific, their work has an impact in many sectors.
