Amazon Top Employer Of Ross ’14 MBAs

The list of employers of Ross MBAs over the past three years provides a fascinating glimpse of the overall MBA recruiting market. Unlike many schools, Ross has broad appeal across many industry sectors, with slightly more manufacturing and consumer product companies in the mix than financial service firms. Looking at the numbers over the past three years of economic recovery provides some interesting trend data.

While Amazon’s appetite for MBAs is definitely on the rise, Google MBA hiring appears to be going in the other director. Two years ago, for example, Google hired eight Ross MBAs. This past year it hired only two. Whether that trend holds up at other schools is yet to be seen.

Also interesting are the companies that have disappeared from Ross’ list this year. They include Sears Holdings, which hired a half dozen Ross MBAs in 2013; Johnson & Johnson, which hired two last year and three in 2012; American Express, which hired one last year and three in 2012; Morgan Stanley, which hired a pair of Ross MBAs last year; Boeing, which took aboard three in 2012, and Capital One Financial, which hired three in 2012.

Employers who made accepted offers to Ross grads in either 2013 or 2012 but do not appear on this year’s list of employers also includes Chrysler (1 in 2013), Ford (1 in 2013), Walgreens (1 in 2013), Deutsche Bank (2 in 2012), UBS (2 in 2012), Intel (2 in 2012), General Electric (2 in 2012), and Lazard (1 in 2012).
