MBA Job Prospects Improve Again

The council said that 102 MBA programs responded to its survey with 91% of them were based in North America. About 59% of the respondents are ranked among the top 50 MBA programs. Job opportunities, the council said, improved regardless of a school’s ranking. Interestingly enough, in fact, schools that were ranked 51 to 100th were the most likely to report an increase in on-campus recruiting (see table below).

 

Roughly 26% of the responding programs also reported increased on-campus recruiting for international students who often have more difficulty landing jobs in non-native countries due to visa restrictions (see chart below).
