Corporate Recruiters Survey: 2011 General Data Report
Graduate Management Admission Council
In this report, the Graduate Management Admission Council[R] (GMAC[R]), in cooperation with MBA Career Services Council and EFMD, presents the results of the 2011 Corporate Recruiters Survey, the tenth annual survey of business graduates' employers. The primary purposes of this study are to examine the job market for graduates from MBA and other specialized master-level programs in business and management, to identify employer needs and expectations and their evolution over time, and to provide employers with useful statistics on recruitment methods, compensation packages, and retention rates. The survey results, which are based on responses from 1,509 employers in 51 countries, can be used by: (1) Individuals in the graduate management education community, including business school professionals, graduate business students, and prospective students, to gauge the job market and better understand employer expectations; (2) Employers of business graduates to develop their hiring plans and benchmark their practices against hiring practices of similar organizations; and (3) Career management professionals at business schools to better manage student expectations and employer relationships. This "Comprehensive Data Report", which is available exclusively to participating schools and employers, is part of the 2011 Corporate Recruiters Survey report set. The content of this report consists primarily of tables presenting survey responses by company characteristics that determine recruitment practices. The text that accompanies each major section of the report highlights key findings. The tables, however, are not comprehensively discussed. The reader should note that where there is a reference to 2010 and 2011, 2010 refers to actual hiring data and 2011 to anticipated hiring data. Survey Participants Participating Schools are appended. (Contains 47 tables and 3 footnotes.)
