More companies are planning to hire business-school graduates in 2011 but most aren't planning to offer higher salaries, according to a survey conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council, which administers the GMAT business-school exam. Sixty-four percent of executives, managers and recruiters polled plan to hire new M.B.A. grads in 2011, up from 60% who said they did so in 2010.
Yet 69% said they expected salaries offered to M.B.A grads would remain flat with those in 2010. Only 26% expected an increase, while 4% forecast a decrease. The survey was conducted in November and included 210 executives, managers and recruiters from 194 companies.
