Graduate Profiles and Placements

We're very proud of our IDCE alumni who have become decision makers in environmental, development, and social service agencies, consultancies, businesses, and non-profits in the U.S. and abroad. Our graduates work with activists, civil society organizations, communities, government policy makers, business people, academics, scientists, and technical experts to advance social change.

Recent graduates are making a difference at a variety of organizations and institutions worldwide, including dynamic, local organizations and businesses as well as well-known institutions. Many graduates also pursue research fellowships or Ph.D. degrees at U.S. and overseas universities.

Of the nearly one hundred graduates who responded to our recent request for information, 60% work in nonprofit agencies, 27% work at for-profit companies, and 13% work for government institutions. About 75% of IDCE graduates stay to work in the United States, but a quarter of our students go on to work abroad in countries such as India, China, Ghana, Mozambique, Laos, Cambodia, Germany, Switzerland, and Belize.
