Career Perspectives from MAP students

About 60% of MAP graduates commence a PhD following completion of the programme. Many of these remain in Erlangen or one of the MAP partner universities. Recent graduates have also secured PhD positions at other world-class universities and institutions including University of Cambridge (UK), University of California at San Diego (USA), Washington State University (USA), McMaster University (Canada) and ETH Zürich (Switzerland).

MAP, however, does not only train excellent academic researchers. Many of our graduates find excellent positions in industry.
