Our last look at this year's MBA profiles focuses on the functional job preferences of first-year students. Interestingly, the class of 2013 interests are right in line with previous MBA classes.
In fact, the top 10 preferences for this year's MBA1s appear to be the same top 10 functions in which all MBAs are interested. Take a look:
Only one difference exists in the MBA1 vs. MBA2 comparison with this year's graduating MBA2s being slightly more interested in Accounting (2.33% of all MBA2s) than in Real Estate (2.25%). It's also worth noting that experienced MBA (EMBA) graduates are much more interested in Sales (top 12 with 1.45%) than current MBA students (top 19 with 0.61% of MBA1s and top 18 with 0.82% of MBA2s).
