Here are the findings for the week prior to February 20th, 2017:
- Business Schools With The Best MBA Cultures
“Haas was also the clear favorite in The Economist’s annual student survey when it comes to the quality of fellow classmates and the culture as a whole. The program scored a 4.81 on a five-point scale, one of the highest scores conferred by students in any of the categories (which include the quality of facilities, faculty, career services, and programs as a whole).”
- 18 of the highest-paying consulting firms for MBAs
“In fact, at many places, the base pay for MBAs starts at $140,000 — more than $60,000 higher than the starting salaries that many candidates earn right out of college. On top of that, salaries for these positions are on the rise, up as much as 5% in the past year.’
- What do MBA admissions directors want in applicants?
“I did an MBA so when I look at applications, I ask questions about emotional intelligence. We want inquisitive individuals who want to make an impact — and by impact I mean within business, culture or the community.” – Brandon Kirby, MBA Recruitment and Admissions Director, Rotterdam School of Management, Netherlands
