Today’s job seekers know that undergraduate degrees alone are far less likely to land you a top job than they used to without serious employment credentials.

At the end of the day, no matter how friendly the students or stunning the facilities, your decisions about which schools to apply to will most likely be informed by your career goals.

Virtually every MBA career center publishes an annual employment report that details students’ internship and job outcomes for the previous year, as well as the companies that hired their students and graduates. These statistics can help you get a sense of students’ interests, as well as the program’s track record of placing graduates in certain areas.
