The survey aims to uncover several elements related to the employment of PhD students following their PhD study. Among other elements it shows that PhD students from all three faculties are in high demand and often finds employment before having defended their PhD thesis. 

The report also contains information from organizations of various sizes that have employed PhD students from one or more of the faculties - In general the satisfaction is very high with the PhD students, however a better understanding of "bottom line thinking" is somewhat lacking amongst the candidates.
