It’s a banner year for business school students and alumni. From MBA programs to specialized master’s degrees in accounting, management, finance, and beyond, things are looking good across the board — and around the world.
According to the GMAC 2015 Corporate Recruiters Survey, “2015 may well turn out to be the best year so far this decade for job-seeking graduate business school students.” Globally, this sentiment rings true across programs:
- More than four in five (84 percent) employers plan on hiring new MBAs in 2015, up from 74 percent (actual hiring) in 2014
- 51 percent want to onboard Master of Science in Management (MiM) grads, up from 41 percent (actual hiring) in 2014
- 46 percent are interested in hiring Master of Science in Finance (MS-FIN) grads, up from 32 percent (actual hiring) in 2014
- 44 percent see the Master of Accountancy (MACC) as a go-to hiring group, up from 31 percent (actual hiring) in 2014
- 57 percent have plans to hire graduates from other specialized business master’s programs, up from 45 percent (actual hiring) in 2014
Comparing the latest hiring projections with actual hiring in 2014, it’s clear that employers recognize the value of graduate business programs — and the talent emerging from them.
