Well, our program apparently has a 95% employment rate in the "field" however since political economy is fairly broad, the "field" can include pretty much anything outside of the trades. Not to mention there is only 10 of us in the program this year. But that aside, ya... we work in government, NGOs and teach. Most of us are in NGOs. My concentration is on alternatives to development concentrating on southeast Asia. I'm currently focusing on social forces as a vehicle for sustainable socio-political change in Burma. I also work with the Burmese community locally and plan on moving back to Thailand after graduation (MA) next fall.

hekster: Carleton University in Ottawa. It's a good program. Small, but there are good people in it with varying backgrounds that really add to the seminars.
