Career Service rating

Here an interesting article about career service:

http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-11-13/b-schools-with-career-services-that-rock-maybe

The ranking itself is not so interesting but article and comments are quite explicative.

By the way thinking about some bad comments about RSM placement, I really wonder what IMD's students should say :-)

"It doesn?t include IMD in Lausanne, Switzerland, where only 77 percent of graduates had job offers within three months of graduation"

Well, those comments are only ever about RSM. I'm pretty sure it's just the same person.

Yes, probably :-) he's also posting in another forum and even people there are thinking the same.

Looks like they removed that sentence, because of "incorrect" placement rates. Although, it still says 77% on IMD's school profile, so go figure.

I think the discrepancy between the statistics and what graduates say has more to do with student expectations than overall subjectivity. The part about Florida International University is especially interesting - they comment that this school, where graduates only make about $50k on average, doesn't show up on the list of "worst" schools for career services. I'd argue that people go into this relatively low-cost program with lower expectations in terms of salary potential than those who go into the program at Stanford, say.

Last week I was listening a webinar by Hec Montreal and the dean was very proud of the school success: for mba graduate, the increase of salary was about 26%!

Do you guys think it's a success or not? :-)

In regards to the 26% statistic, it's hard to say. It's calculated only a year after graduation, whereas the larger increases you see in the FT rankings, for example, are calculated a few years out. Here's the relevant text from the FT's methodology:

The ?salary increase?... is calculated for each school according to the difference in average alumni salary before the MBA to the present time, three years after graduation ? a period of typically four to five years.


Although I don't think the salary increase for HEC Montreal MBA grads is as large as those from LBS or Columbia, it's still pretty good, especially for residents of Québec, who only pay something like $7K CAD for the program.
