MBA hiring is up across the board

Good news for MBAs and those currently attending a top-ranked graduate business school: MBA hiring is up across the board.

* yes, job "board" pun intended.

In general, MBA Focus saw a 65% increase in MBA jobs over the past year (2011 vs 2010). This increase is based on the number of MBA-required and MBA-preferred jobs on the graduate business school job boards powered by MBA Focus' Global Talent System. This includes schools like Columbia, Cornell's Johnson School, Harvard Business School, MIT – Sloan, Kellogg, Stanford GSB, UC Berkeley – Haas, Chicago's Booth School of Business and more.

But MBA hiring has prospered in some industries more than others, including a 440% increase in agribusiness and multiple technology industries with more than a 10% increase.

Here is the complete breakdown:
  1. Agribusiness 440.00%
  2. Engineering Services 172.73%
  3. Manufacturing 171.43%
  4. Financial - Insurance 139.53%
  5. Nonprofits & Social Enterprises 107.14%
