Today's MBA delivers global experience

 

MBA Focus recruiting and career services

 

Generally, MBA students currently attending top-ranked business schools are located on, near, and around those campuses. And after graduation, they spread across the globe.

The MBAs in our database are no different. They are currently attending full-time programs located on three different continents, including 24 of the top 25 b-schools in the US; 6 of the top 10 international programs; and a total of 69 schools globally. And when they graduate this summer or next, they will join the global workforce just like the alumni before them.

Ever wonder where these MBA students lived and work before attending b-school? Our data suggests pre-MBA life experiences extending well beyond their current geographical locations. The current first- and second-year MBA students in our database have worked around the world, including:

  • 1. India 6.52%
