JAMK graduates have good employment prospects. Two in three students completing a Bachelor’s degree at JAMK have a job at the time of graduation. The employment situation at the time of graduation is particularly good for, among others, students graduating from the degree programmes in logistics (85%) and nursing (82%) and from the Team Academy (86%). Two in three graduates with a job were employed in Central Finland.

6% or 38 graduates continue or start as an entrepreneur immediately after graduation. For the Team Academy, this proportion is as high as 43% (11) of all graduates. This is a top result even on the national scale.

Among those particularly satisfied are students of media engineering, social services and the English-language Music and Media Management programme. Most students are employed in positions that correspond to their education: 88% said that they can make use of the competence gained at JAMK in their work.

After graduation, 11% have worked in supervisory positions and 30% in specialist positions. The proportion of supervisory positions is high among graduates from, for example, the degree programmes in civil engineering (50%), logistics (27%) and service management.
