We surveyed over 600 companies, and 87 percent reported working directly with schools to recruit graduate business students from many business programs. We also asked about the top factors recruiters consider when choosing which schools to visit.

NYU Stern and other schools typically release employment reports for this reason. In our own research, we also asked alumni if the skills developed in business school advanced their careers.
