Regardless of the economic climate, demand for MBA degree graduates always remains strong. MBA programs are constantly evolving to continue to offer management professionals the tools they need for career success.

According to Graduate Management Admission Council’s (GMAC) 2016 Alumni Perspectives survey of more than 14,000 alumni of 70 business schools worldwide

  • 95% of alumni rate their degree as an outstanding or excellent value
  • 93% found their education to be rewarding personally
  • 89% found their education to be rewarding professionally
  • 75% found their education to be rewarding financially

Career success can be measured in a variety of ways. The high levels of satisfaction for personal, professional, and financial reward found in the survey indicate an MBA degree leads to career success. The most common career paths among MBA degree holders were finance and accounting (19%), products and services (19%) and technology (17%).

GMAC also found that 1 in 10 business school alums are self-employed, and of these, more than 80% are happy being entrepreneurs.
