Your jump-start to a successful career

Some students are offered junior management posts by the organisations that have hosted their internship or commissioned their final-year thesis.
An impressive number of HFU graduates have successfully completed the rigorous selection tests set by some of the biggest global organisations and there are many opportunities for our students to work in small- and medium-sized companies located in the area.
