Can Master's International Politics Land a Job in Finance/Real Estate?

Hey everyone, I am student finishing up my bachelor's degree in finance at a US school (I'm American). 

I want to attend KU Leuven (Belgium) for my Master's. I am strongly considering getting my Master's in International Politics or even Transnational and Global Perspectives (seem similar tbh) because they cover a broad range of topics like law, economics, government, and sustainable development which I found beneficial to know in the realm of commercial real estate which is my planned career path post graduation. Was curious your thoughts on this because this degree would be more affordable to me, I already studied abroad at KU for a semester so I already love it, and I already have a background in business and finance and want to show my versatility. 

I would like to get job after in the EU for maybe 1-2 years if I can even though I know it's tough to get a work visa. I mostly likely would move back to the states to pursue my career further in real estate over there. SO, long story short what are your thoughts on getting a Master's in International Politics when I plan to pursue a career path in Real Estate after?

 

Thanks in advance
