Corporate Recruiters Survey

Did COVID-19 Impact Hiring Demand and Salaries for MBA and Business Master’s graduates? In June GMAC will conduct a follow-up Corporate Recruiters Survey to find out!

In early February, GMAC conducted in partnership with MBA CSEA, EFMD, Highered and business schools around the world our annual survey of employers to collect vital insights that would allow us to keep business schools informed of the latest trends in the hiring market for recent MBA and business master’s graduates.

However on March 11, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, which disrupted the education and hiring landscape for 2020.  Recognizing the data collected pre-COVID-19 may not accurately reflect the current intentions of employers, GMAC is conducting a follow-up survey to collect updated hiring and salary projections that reflect this disruption.

Survey topics will include:

  • Updated hiring projections
  • Expected starting salaries and starting bonuses
  • Internship offering plans and intern hiring by candidate type
  • Skills employers will be looking for in a post COVID-19 workforce

If you did not participate in the February survey, now is your chance to hear from your employers. Please click on the link to sign-up to participate in the June 2020 Corporate Recruiters Survey All participating schools will receive a comprehensive report outlining the survey findings.

Once you register, GMAC will provide your school with a suggested invite email, and a generic school-level URL, so that your school can invite your employers to participate in the survey directly.
