The newest employment report announces career outcomes of Class of 2019 graduates. The percentage of social impact careers jumped up this year, a sign of the dean’s vision for the future of management education coming to fruition. In addition, women launching or joining a startup has surged in recent years, now more closely matching their representation in the class.

VPGE serves the entire graduate student community across all seven schools, including the Graduate School of Business.
