2021 MBA Employment Reports & Class Profiles

There is always another question behind the first question you pose.

How much will I make after I graduate?

That really means, Is this worth the time and cost?

Who will some of my classmates be?

Translation: Are they smart, fun, and well-connected?

Of course, GMAT and GPA questions always boil down to this: Will this school even consider my application?

To answer these questions, Poets&Quants produces three school-by-school series:

Incoming Class Profiles: In-depth analysis on the data points — including GMAT scores, demographic breakdowns, and professional backgrounds — of incoming classes (along with historical data reflecting school trends).

MBA Employment Reports: A look at graduating class compensation, so readers know who made what and where — and how it compares to previous classes and other schools.

Class of Profiles: A personal look at incoming MBA classes, headlined by 12 in-depth profiles of first-years and a comprehensive Q&A with a top school administrator.
