Boom time for MBAs in US
By Rebecca Knight in Boston
Published: May 28 2007 20:31

This recruiting season at top US business schools is the most competitive since the bursting of the technology bubble, as private equity firms, hedge funds, and real estate companies join investment banks and other traditional seekers of young talent.

According to school officials, not only has the number of companies recruiting at business schools increased, these companies are also making more visits to campus, and devoting more time and effort to wooing newly minted MBAs.

Recruiting at business schools reached its peak in 1999, but after the technology boom subsided, recruiting and hiring was lacklustre for several years. It has recently started to pick up, and this spring, it is “the healthiest in years”, according to Jonathan Masland, of Tuck School's Career Development office at Dartmouth College.

Maybe it's just me, but I LOVE reading these articles right now. Nothing like some non-biased positive reinforcement to help support your decision to go back to school and incur $100+K of debt.

I second that Eazy! Just a nice bit of reassurance for our decision. :-D

As long as it continues and doesn't fall apart like it did post bubble...I am sure everyone who started school in '99 thought they were set.

Of course, but it's definitely better than hearing how the MBA market is down and hiring should be below average for the forseeable future.
