More Good News On The MBA Job Market

There’s still more good news on the MBA jobs front. A new survey of business schools by the MBA Career Services Council released today (June 7) shows that the recovery in the job market has spread well beyond the top-ranked schools.

The survey findings show that 51% of responding B-schools report an increase in on-campus recruiting for full-time jobs, while 69% of respondents report an increase in full-time job postings. Only 11% of schools reported a decline in on-campus recruiting activity. Schools ranked outside the top 20 showed the biggest increases, suggesting that the economic recovery in MBA jobs, which started two years ago, has now spread up and down the business school landscape (see table below). Some 73% of schools ranked between 51st and 100 reported improvement, while 43% of top 20 schools reported an uptick.

The council said that increases in recruiting activity are occurring across most sectors, with consulting and technology showing the largest increase. Financial services and government showed the largest decrease in full-time recruiting.

A third of the schools reported increases of between 1% and 10%, while one in four schools said on-campus opportunities were flat. About 9% of the responding business schools said job opportunities on-campus were up 20% or more (see table below).
