Hire Expectations 2013

What changes do GMAC survey results show for the hiring of MBA and specialized business Master’s graduates this year? Join GMAC researchers and gain their key insights from our latest employer and student surveys. 

Aligning student expectations with those of corporate recruiters is the topic of this latest GMAC webinar. This is our annual look at the hiring landscape and what career services and admissions professionals need to know to help students manage their MBA and Master’s career expectations. 

The gap between MBA or specialized business Master's student expectations and the hiring landscape extends beyond ideas about starting salaries to the skills employers look for and the likelihood that graduates will land a dream job with their dream company after they complete their programs. Matching expectations with reality depends on access to solid data about the job market, understanding student perceptions and motivations, and then communicating these insights with students. 

Topics for the session include:

  • Which industries and employers have a strong appetite for hiring MBAs and specialized business Master’s degree-holders?
  • What skills are expected by employers from new graduates?
  • What job search process may be most effective to land employment offers?
  • What goals do MBA and Master’s students have about their preferred employers or careers? 

You’ll come away from the webinar with important data to help you manage prospective MBA and Masters students’ career expectations and ensure that the goals of your next class align with reality.
