      Graduates of the Applied Ethics doctoral programme are well employed in numerous fields of human activity. Either they extend their knowledge and skills to the ethical dimension of their basic profession (e.g. by creating codes of ethics or applying and interpreting parts of them in practice), work on standardising the ethical rules of their profession in national and transnational versions, or work as experts in ethics committees or develop so-called ethical consulting. Graduates are able to work actively and effectively in the top management of modern institutions, organizations and companies as professional ethicists. Thanks to their graduation in applied ethics, they are newly employed as teachers in university study programmes where students prepare for the helping professions and in higher education programmes, especially in health and social sciences. As ethics is often included as a compulsory subject in secondary schools, they can also gain employment here. They are often involved in ethics committees or panels, which are established in a wide range of professional fields, as well as in government institutions.
