GMAC once again partnered with the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) and the MBA Career Services Council (MBA CSC) in designing the survey and in soliciting survey partnerships.
The objectives of this annual study are to obtain a picture of the current employment landscape, gauge the demand for master’s-level business graduates, better understand employer needs, and provide insight into hiring practices. The survey examines hiring trends for graduates from MBA, Master in Management, and specialized master’s programs (accounting, business information technology, finance, and financial engineering).
Responses to this survey of graduate business student employers were collected from mid-February to mid-March 2010. Data reflect the responses of 2,367 participants representing 1,960 companies in 57 countries worldwide; 129 of the global Fortune 500 companies participated. Respondents in the United States represent firms in 43 states and the District of Columbia and include 171 of the US Fortune 500 companies.
