Some 92% of those with graduate degrees in business and management last year found employment within three months after graduation, according to a survey of 2012 grads by the Graduate Management Admission Council released on Jan. 22. It was the highest employment rate reported in this survey for any graduating class since 2003 and a full six percentage points higher than the 86% of the Class of 2011 graduates polled at the same time a year earlier by GMAC. Nearly 7 in 10 (68%) graduates secured their job before leaving graduate school.
As previously reported by PoetsandQuants, placement rates were even higher at some of the more prominent business schools last year. Emory’s Goizueta School posted the highest job offer rate this year, with 98% of the Class of 2012 with offers of employment within three months, up three percentage points from 95% in 2011. Four other well-known schools followed Emory, each with 96% of their graduates getting job offers within three months: UC-Berkeley Haas, Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, MIT Sloan, and Columbia Business School.
