MBA hiring is up five percent from last year, to 67 percent, according to the most recent corporate recruiter survey from GMAC. More than half of respondents reported having at least one job offer in March, weeks before graduation (compared to 32 percent last year). As expected, students in the Asia-Pacific region had better job prospects than those in the US (67 percent to 54 percent). Recruiting was strongest in finance, accounting, manufacturing and energy.
Oh, and salary offers appear to be up: $91,433 in the US, and $91, 693 in Europe.
Look for the full GMAC survey report to be released later this month.
