2013 Employer Poll CoverGMAC conducts a Year-End Poll of Employers every November to compare actual hiring for the past year with hiring projections for the next.

The 2013 report includes detailed data about MBA programs and three of the most popular master's programs at today's business schools: Master in Management, Master of Accounting, and Master of Finance.

The results give participating employers benchmarking statistics and provide business schools and students with an advance look at job market prospects. In 2013, 211 employers representing a diverse cross-section of companies—including 41 Fortune 500 companies and 22 Fortune 100 companies—responded to the study.
