Biggest MBA Recruiters : Who Hires the Most MBAs?


Last Updated on October 15, 2022 by MBA Gateway Team

Now that you’ve been thoroughly saturated with function and industry data, let’s make it more tangible by talking about specific companies. What companies from these industries actually recruit on MBA campuses?

Below is a list of companies that recruit on 8 or more MBA campuses. You’ll see that these are generally pretty big firms. That’s because recruiting on MBA campuses requires time and resources that, in general, only bigger companies can afford.

They have to send representatives from their companies to host information sessions, conduct interviews with candidates, and plan to recruit events – often over multiple days – and then multiply that by the number of campuses! So, you can see why only a handful of companies recruit from 20+ campuses!

Note: Not all schools reported all companies that hired graduates, so this list may omit some top hiring companies

We also wanted to show you recruiting data by school. Below, we’ve aggregated the number of companies that hired at least one student from an MBA program and compared it to the number of students on campus. This data covers both on-campus and off-campus recruiting and for some schools (marked with an *), this also includes internship recruiting.

This gives us a sense of the diversity of recruiting outcomes in MBA programs. This could be driven by the school having a robust and diverse set of on-campus recruiting partners, or an indication that students are networking and finding jobs on their own. To help give context, we’ve also included data about what % of opportunities were facilitated by the school, where available.

Schools with high ratios like CMU Tepper and UCLA Anderson send students to a highly diverse batch of companies. UCLA Anderson also sits on the lower end of % of opportunities facilitated by the school, which implies that the diversity of opportunities there is likely driven by students networking their way into opportunities. Schools with lower ratios like NYU Stern and Columbia likely send multiple students to the same companies.

Note: We only included schools in this chart that reported all of their placement data. If a school only reported “top hiring companies,” we excluded it from this chart. If a school reported hiring companies for both internships and post-MBA job placement combined (*), we calculated the ratio using the total number of students looking for full-time jobs and internships.
