Respondents also identified business schools they deem to produce excellent hires in ten areas of elective specialization: finance; strategy; marketing; entrepreneurship; corporate social responsibility; information management; innovation; international management; leadership and operations management.

The report allows those considering an MBA to identify business schools which are meeting the needs of international employers and discover newer ones which are gaining reputation.
