Here are the findings for the week prior to April 3rd, 2017
- Tech Firms Get Their MBA Talent At These Schools
“…the high tech industry has become a major recruiter of elite MBA talent in recent years. Amazon leads this parade at one school after another, hiring 35 MBAs last year at INSEAD, 34 at Michigan Ross, 23 at both MIT Sloan and Northwestern Kellogg, 19 at Chicago Booth, and a 15 at Duke Fuqua.”
- An MBA recruiter says paying less for business school could come down to your attitude
“MBA programs often track student’s interactions throughout the scholarship process, he says, whether they’re emailing with a student ambassador, calling the receptionist, or meeting with an admissions director, and they expect the student to be positive and professional at every turn. And if you’re putting in the work to negotiate your tuition, the team expects you to show enthusiastic interest in the program.”
- If The MBA Admissions Office Applied To Business School: IE Business School
“While we don’t explicitly advertise, or mention this anywhere: IE is the perfect environment for students who we call “soul-searchers”. These are the kind of MBA candidates that, when they begin the program, don’t have clearly defined ideas about what exactly they want to do post-graduation.”
