The prestigious Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree has traditionally been a valued asset to careers in the business world. The latest data reveals that the prospects remain high in almost any professional field.
About 88 percent of employers said they would hire recent MBA graduates in 2016, according to a poll of 800 corporate recruiters by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), the organisation that administers the GMAT exam.
"In 2016, companies continue to express high levels of hiring demand for business school graduates," the report states.
In addition, 89 percent of the respondents plan to conduct on-campus recruitment visits, further reinforcing the notion that career opportunities are one of the core advantages offered by the MBA experience.
The strong demand for MBA graduates also signifies higher salaries. US-based companies plan to offer recent MBA graduates a starting median base salary of 105.000 dollars in 2016, up from 100.000 dollars in 2015.
MBA graduates participating in an annual survey conducted by Advent Group in 2016 also attested to the bright prospects, with 78 percent of those polled claiming that they have either found a better-paying job or managed to climb the career ladder as a result of their studies.
The Access MBA event will take place at the Hilton Hotel (Apollolaan 138) on Thursday, January 26, 2017, 4.30 - 10pm.
In order for Access MBA to identify the most suitable business school options for them, event attendees are required to register for free online.
