Not only do Erasmus Mundus graduates receive a boast to their earning potential, but past participants also found that their job search took less time after graduation than fellow students who finished their studies at home.
Almost 62% of the Erasmus Mundus graduates who were working in 2011 found their job within two months of graduating and about 80% within four months. Among these graduates, 19% were hired for their job during their studies, and 26% found it in less than one month. Only for 10% of these graduates the job search took longer than six months. Compared to fellow graduates who studied/graduated at home, almost 57% of Erasmus Mundus students give credits to their scholarship abroad regarding finding a job more quickly and easily. (Source)
