Most MBA Graduates Satisfied with Degree, Survey Reports
Posted Friday, Jun 13, 2014 by
The Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC), an international nonprofit organization of business schools, regularly polls business school graduates on a number of key topics. According to the results of its 2014 survey, a whopping 94 percent of graduates who hold a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) say their degree was worth the time, money and effort they invested to earn it.*
This figure on MBA satisfaction represents responses from 20,704 alumni from 132 business schools who graduated between 1959 and 2013.
Another interesting survey result: Nearly half of MBA graduates used their degrees to start their own businesses. In the survey, 45 percent of graduates from the classes of 2010-2013 said they immediately went into business for themselves, compared to just 7 percent of entrepreneurs who graduated before 1990.
