The economic volatility of the last few years has brought a lot of change to MBA hiring. Join top researchers from GMAC and Universum to hear key insights from their recently published reports. Topics include: which industries and employers have a strong appetite for hiring MBAs and what skills they expect from new graduates; which industries are still in recovery mode or have shifted to a different audience; and what MBA students are seeking in terms of career goals and preferred employers. You’ll come away with important data to help you manage prospective MBA students’ career expectations and ensure that your next class’s goals line up with reality.
