This is a very common question and the truth is there isn’t one correct answer.

Your future career journey is determined by many factors, including your area(s) of interest, skills, values, and personal style. Two students in the same program, module or specialization may take all the same classes and go on to do two very different things.

While at Brescia, it’s important to purposefully connect your degree planning with your career planning.
