MBA Careers – Hiring on the Rise
Often questions about MBA careers come down to one important number: your salary after graduating. Let’s face it, few people pursue an MBA degree for the joy of learning; earning an MBA is often about furthering your career and improving your salary.
There is great news for those pursing an MBA in business. According to a recent study conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), 72% of employers expect to hire MBA graduates in 2015 compared to 69% in 2014. In addition, 88% of those surveyed expect to hire as many or more MBA grads than they did in 2014.
According to GMAC, today’s companies are focusing more on expansion and growth which leads to increased hiring (and salaries), as compared to the prior focus of financial challenges that were common in the past few years as we were coming out of a recession.
GMAC’s annual year-end poll surveyed 169 employers globally.
