Students consider many factors before pursuing graduate management eduction. The annual Corporate Recruiters Survey published by GMAC® found that career advancement is a prime motivator for pursuing graduate management education and that corporate recruiters project a robust demand for business school graduates, with nine in ten of them expect it to increase or remain stable in the next five years.

Given the anticipated growth in demand for graduate business school there is an increased need for business school leaders to examine the hiring trends for MBA students and understand how they can expand relevant students offerings. In the September Collab we will explore questions like: What are recruiters looking for when hiring graduate business school students? How can we position our graduates for success? What skills do employers value in our students? and How can we keep MBA programs relevant for students working in a post COIVD-19 world?

The conversation will be led by Rahul Choudaha, Director of Industry Insights & Research Communications at Graduate Management Admission Council® (GMAC®) who will discuss the findings of their latest Corporate Recruiters Survey.
