Corporate Recruiters Survey

Help your grads navigate the job market with the latest employer data.

Results from the 2017 Corporate Recruiters Survey point to robust employment opportunities this year for graduates of MBA and business master's programs. 

Nearly 9 in 10 employers report their companies will be hiring MBAs in 2017 and indicate increased demand for graduates of other business master’s. Despite political uncertainty around the globe regarding immigration and work visa programs, most companies are staying the course with plans to hire international graduate business students. 

The 2017 Corporate Recruiters Survey, conducted with survey partners, EFMD and MBA CSEA, and 97 business schools worldwide, drew responses from 959 employers from more than 628 companies in 51 countries around the globe. Two additional organizations, CEMS and RelishMBA, also assisted with recruitment of employer participants.
