MBA Career Goals
Relative to the 2017 SBC Survey in which we asked the same question, MBA career goals have shifted. Interest in the finance career path decreased by about 5% and interest in the technology career path increased by about 5%. Nonprofit/ social impact and entrepreneurship interest also increased since last year. The consulting career plan is roughly the same comparing responses between the 2017 and 2018 survey, as is marketing and start up.
MBA applicants are shifting career aspirations according to the economic trends. Diligence in crafting clear career narratives in the MBA application is key.
