MBA StartUps


The job prospects in India for MBAs remain extremely rewarding. Second only to the US for its sheer volume of job opportunities for MBA graduates is India. In a country in which the degree as long been held in high esteem by employers and, indeed, in which options for local provision have multiplied rapidly, a growth rate of 33% this year is comfortably above the already-high 18% growth rate across the Asia-Pacific region as a whole. Notable industry rises reported by MBA employers in India this year include increases in MBA job opportunities across the following sectors: 59% in construction/property, 47% in education, 33% in HR/recruitment services and 46% in financial services.

A large number of employers that plan to hire new MBAs in 2017 plan to increase (42%) or maintain (47%) the number of recent MBAs they hire compared with last year, with demand strongest in the United States and India, where 9 in 10 respondents plan to hire MBA graduates in 2017. In the startup world, meanwhile, 74% of new companies plan to hire MBAs in 2017, up from 52% in 2016.

We at GNA Business School, predicts that there will be a hiring frenzy that will help MBAs find jobs in the near future. Over 60 percent of students who are enrolled in an MBA program have a job offer before they graduate. Companies that recognize the benefit of having an MBA on staff are hiring more MBAs at slightly higher salaries this year.

Job Prospects


MBAs who have a concentration in finance or accounting are less likely to find an opportunity than those who focus on marketing or technology. These growing fields demand specialists who have an academic background that focuses on business. Unique business models for companies in the technology and healthcare fields require advanced training.
