MBA is the most popular post-graduate degree around the world. Aspirants pursue MBA to boost their careers and to climb the corporate ladder faster. It’s only fitting then to find out how MBA grads are impacted by the degree a few years down the line.

Recently Financial Times conducted a survey on MBA grads who completed their degree in the last 3-5 years. Both corporate workers and entrepreneurs were a part of the survey and the results are very interesting to say the least. You can also learn more about MBA in Entrepreneurship with our blog.

Another interesting insight from this survey is that the public sector was the least favourite area for MBA grads to work in.
