The Graduate Management Admission Council's (GMAC) recent employment report for new MBA graduates was full of good news. "More companies in all sectors and across the world plan to hire business school graduates, with projected hiring rates the highest for all degree types since the Great Recession started in 2009," said Sangeet Chowfla, GMAC CEO and president.
