The GMAC’s 2017 Year-End Employer Poll reveals a favorable outlook for 2018. After 2017’s favorable results, more employers expected to hire MBA and business master’s graduates this coming year. There was, however, a shift in reported employer plans towards hiring specialists over generalists and only 18% of the employers polled this year planned to hire international graduates which is down from 27% the previous year.
Again, 2017 was a very good year for MBA graduates and we’re optimistic for the Class of 2018 as well. If you’re still in the prospective applicant pool, you may want to give some additional thought to the various specialized business master’s degrees.
