Alumni Perspectives Survey, 2012. Survey Report
Leach, Laura
Graduate Management Admission Council
Conducted in September 2011, this Alumni Perspectives Survey by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) is a longitudinal study of respondents to the Global Management Education Graduate Survey, the annual GMAC[R] exit survey of graduate management students in their final year of business school. This 12th annual report includes responses from 4,135 alumni who graduated from the classes of 2000 through 2011, including 963 members of the class of 2011. This research study tracks alumni employment characteristics over time, exploring job search strategies, compensation and promotion data, industry and job function trends, as well as employment satisfaction and alumni views on their graduate management education. Survey findings are presented in four sections, as follows: (1) Profile of the recently graduated class of 2011, including their job search strategies, employment status, and compensation statistics; (2) Current employment data for alumni from across all graduation years (2000-2011), including career change strategies, salary and other compensation, and job retention; (3) Statistics on career satisfaction, worker engagement on the job, work/life balance, and the state of gender equality in the workplace; and (4) Views of alumni across all graduation years about their business school experience, specifically the value of their degree and its contribution to their career progression, their financial return on investment, and the personal and professional rewards realized from pursuing their degrees. (Contains 9 tables, 27 figures and 49 footnotes.)
