     (Logo: )

This major research into MBA graduate employability is based on the largest survey of global employer opinion in existence

MBA employers were asked to identify the business schools of which they prefer to recruit from. The 3305 respondents also identified schools they deem to produce excellent hires in ten areas of elective specialization: finance; strategy; marketing; entrepreneurship; CSR; information management; innovation; leadership, operations management, and international management.

                                       3 NUS Business School

The report points to a leading cluster of 39 'elite global' business schools spread across North America (22), Europe (14) and Asia-Pacific (3). While the US total of 15 'elite global' schools is unsurpassed, only Harvard boasts a comparable employer reputation to London Business School and INSEAD.

Graduates from top European schools are shown to earn higher average salaries* than their North American counterparts. Graduate salaries at Europe's 'elite global' schools averaged US$109,300, compared to US$101,100 in North America.

However, while Europe's schools performed well for employability and graduate salaries, when it comes to specializations the US schools dominate. Harvard places number one in four of the 10 subjects covered, ahead of MIT-Sloan (2), INSEAD (1), Kellogg, Northwestern (1), Stanford (1) and Wharton (1).

Nunzio Quacquarelli, managing director of QS says, "This year's report finds record numbers of companies turning towards hiring MBAs, underlining the value of the qualification in today's globalized economy."
