100% of March 2023 ICMS graduates already have a job*

April 6, 2023

Every member of the cohort that graduated at the ICMS March 2023 Graduation Ceremony are currently working, according to a recent Internal Graduate Survey 2023*.

The internal survey was undertaken at the ICMS Northern Beaches campus, and was completed by 62 respondents of the graduating cohort.

The survey revealed:

  • 100% of ICMS graduates have a job.*
  • 38% of graduates have a job at the same company as their WIL placement*

The reality that every student who graduated at our March ceremony is already employed and on their way to professional success in their chosen industry is a scenario that ICMS as a career-focused higher education institution is incredibly proud of.

The survey results are a success indicator of ICMS’ ethos as The Professional Mentor, supporting students on their journey from enrolment through to graduation and beyond.

Career-focused higher education results in meaningful employment

Located in Northern Beaches, Sydney, NSW, and in the city of Sydney, ICMS offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and courses.

ICMS prepares its graduates for the workforce, providing practical learning experiences that bridge the gap between academia and industry. The higher education institution’s strong commitment to Work Integrated Learning (WIL) and industry training is key to the high graduate employability rate, with work placements built into each course of study.

The strong relationship ICMS enjoys with over 1000 industry partners contributes greatly to the 100% graduate employment rate highlighted by the survey.
