The Employability cluster addresses the career opportunities offered by the Erasmus Mundus Joint Programmes to Erasmus Mundus graduate students worldwide.
The employability of students graduating from Erasmus Mundus Joint Programmes is key to the success of the Erasmus Mundus Programme. The Joint Programmes should ensure their academic content meets professional needs, contributing to the transfer of knowledge and skills, and offering complementary skills courses and/or placement possibilities. They also should provide incentives for candidates from developing countries to exploit their experience for the benefit of their home country.
