Alumni Perspectives Survey, 2010. Survey Report
Sheikh, Sabeen
Graduate Management Admission Council
During the months of April and September of 2009, the Graduate Management Admission Council[R] (GMAC[R]) conducted the Alumni Perspectives Survey, a longitudinal study of prior respondents to the Global Management Education Graduate Survey of management students nearing graduation. A total of 3,708 alumni responded to the April 2009 survey, representing graduates from the classes of 2000 through 2008. The September 2009 survey sample also included the newly graduated class of 2009. A total of 3,966 alumni responded to the September survey. This report combines data from both of the Alumni Perspectives Surveys conducted in 2009. Since this survey's inception 10 years ago, its research objectives have been to document job characteristics for both the first jobs alumni held after graduation and their current jobs; to track changes in career progression and salary over time; to assess the benefits of graduate management education from a retrospective point of view; and to monitor alumni's educational and communication needs. This report is organized into four sections: the first provides a portrait of the class of 2009 and their employment prospects; the second offers alumni perspectives on job and career progression, salaries, and skills needed for professional success; the third gives voice to alumni opinions on business ethics in the workplace and its role as a part of management curriculum; and the last section presents alumni perspectives on communications with their graduate business school and their ongoing relationship with their alma mater. (Contains 2 tables, 22 figures and 36 footnotes.)
