The State Of The MBA Degree

We’re not entirely keen on those infographics created by organizations that are screaming for some kind of attention–any kind of attention. But this one from Noodle.org, the educational portal backed by Princeton Review founder Jon Katzman, is worth noodling over.

It’s on the state of the MBA, which is pretty damn good given the strength of the job market for this year’s graduates as well as the overall quality of the educational experience at most business schools.

None of this stuff will be surprising to readers of Poets&Quants, which is a source for some of the items and which has published articles on every data point shown here. But the folks at Noodle did a good job in putting it all together, including the latest job market data from the just released corporate recruiter survey by the Graduate Management Admission Council.
