Keep up-to-date with the latest trends in the hiring market for recent MBA and business master’s graduates

Registration is now open for the Corporate Recruiters Survey 2020!

Each year, the Graduate Management Admission Council®, EFMD, Highered and MBA CSEA join forces to sponsor the annual Corporate Recruiters Survey – collecting data from hundreds of employers around the world about 2019 hiring outcomes, 2020 hiring expectations, internship plans, international hiring, and skills.

We hope your Business School will take part in this survey by signing up by 5 February 2020.

The GMAC Corporate Recruiters Survey Report offers a unique view of the current hiring outlook for graduate business students. Findings analyse the demand for business school graduates by industry and world region, salaries, job functions, and mobility in regional job placement. Insights into company hiring plans, compensation trends and regional job placement are especially important, as employment outcomes are a top factor driving prospective students’ decisions to pursue a graduate management education.
