In recent years, the Executive Board of Maastricht University (UM) has become increasingly aware of the importance of promoting the employability of graduates. A study by Van Eldert et al. (2017) has given us many insights into the employability of UM graduates. Their employability over time is relatively stable, but there are differences between faculties. There are also few differences between UM graduates and graduates from other Dutch universities. The employability of UM graduates is partly explained by personal characteristics, personality, education and the level of competencies acquired.
