Career opportunities

Project managers can work for public, municipal or private companies, and there are plenty of opportunities to work as a self-employed person. Fields of activity can be very diverse – from business to entertainment. Most project managers are office workers, but there is a growing trend for project managers to plan their time individually, particularly taking into account the industry in which the project is being developed (for example, an event project manager’s working hours do not usually fit into standard office hours).

Opportunities for further study

After graduation, a student can continue education in the doctoral programme “Business Management”.

Any student of the master’s programme who has completed at least one year of study can participate in the Erasmus+ exchange programme.
A student can go to study at one of RISEBA’s partner universities. The duration of study mobility is 2–12 months.
The student does not have to pay for the period spent in the study and internship exchange programme abroad; the tuition fee is covered by the partner university, but the student continues to pay the RISEBA tuition fee. For the period spent abroad during mobility, the student is awarded an Erasmus+ scholarship to cover the costs of transport and accommodation.
* Erasmus+ internship mobility provides that a student can undergo an internship in one of the companies of interest in one of the Erasmus+ programme countries. For this internship period, the student receives an Erasmus+ scholarship. The duration of internship mobility is 2–12 months.
