2012 Application Trends Survey. Early Release Edition
Estrada, Rebecca; Bruggeman, Paula
Graduate Management Admission Council
The 2012 Application Trends Survey conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council[R] (GMAC[R]) is the industry source for comprehensive statistics and timely insights into the demand for graduate management education worldwide. Since 2000, this survey of admission professionals has provided information on application volume trends, applicant pool composition, recruitment strategies, acceptance and enrollment rates, and incoming class size. The Application Trends Survey Report is a product of GMAC, a global nonprofit education organization of leading graduate business schools and the owner of the Graduate Management Admission Test[R] (GMAT[R]). The GMAT exam is an important part of the admissions process for more than 5,500 graduate management programs around the world. GMAC is dedicated to creating access to and disseminating information about graduate management education; these schools and others rely on the Council as the premier provider of reliable data about the graduate management education industry. This year's Application Trends Survey--the thirteenth since GMAC introduced the annual survey in 2000--included more participants than ever before: A record-breaking 744 programs were represented in the survey from 359 business schools and faculties, 44 percent of which submitted data for more than one program type. Participating programs are located in 46 countries, 42 states, and the District of Columbia in the United States. By program type, survey respondents include 527 MBA programs, 193 specialized master's programs, and 24 doctoral programs in business. Two-thirds (66%) of participating schools were located in the United States; however, a record percentage of programs (34%) from elsewhere in the world are represented in these findings. (Contains 10 tables, 24 figures and 25 footnotes.)
