Enrolled Student Survey

Explore the business school experience from the candidate's perspective

In 2021, GMAC partnered with graduate business schools worldwide to understand the enrolled student experience. While much industry research focuses on the bookends of this population: prospective students and successful graduates, this study places the most recent graduating class at the centerpiece of the story. The 2021 report explores the value perceptions, academic experiences, and employment outcomes of students studying and graduating during the pandemic. More than a thousand students from almost 60 business schools in 30 countries around the world told us about their experiences in their programs, their job searches, career objectives, and more.
