Enrolled Students Survey

Explore the business school experience from the candidate's perspective

The annual Enrolled Students Survey from the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) provides the world’s graduate business schools with data and insights to understand current trends in student and recent graduates’ evaluations and outcomes of their graduate management education (GME). 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 2022 report explores the value perceptions, academic experiences, and employment outcomes of students studying and graduating during the pandemic. More than 1,700 students from almost 300 business schools in 57 countries around the world told us about their experiences in their programs, their job searches, career objectives, and more.
