The value of an MBA is endorsed as a route to accelerated career progression
With 97% of those seeking employment having received their first job offer in the first three months after graduation, this class has felt an upswing in the job market in many sectors. This underlines the fact that recruiters still find a top MBA to be a valuable qualification and continue to work with business schools to seek talent.
The MBA appeals to a wider set of recruiters
With our graduates securing positions in a wide variety of companies and organisations, these results prove that opportunities exist for MBA graduates not just in mainstream MBA recruitment programmes in multinationals, but also in sectors such as Beyond Profit and the Arts. Students of the Cambridge MBA are given the chance to learn in-depth in one of eight concentrations - this tailoring brings skills, networks and practical experiences which can boost employability in that sector.
Close relations with recruiters
These outstanding results also endorse the high-touch strategy of our MBA careers team, and show the benefits of a smaller class: students gain a more personalised education and one-to-one careers support. Careers staff know students individually, and are able to match recruiter needs more closely because of this familiarity.
This data is based on the career outcome information from 99% of the 2010/11 MBA class. The full data report will be available in July 2012.
