The Krannert Professional Development Center is pleased to present these employment results for Krannert's 2-year, residential MBA program. Employment results vary from year to year depending on national, regional, and industry-specific economic conditions, as well as student demographics. These results are for the Class of 2014 only and do not necessarily represent results in other years, past or future. These results were calculated in compliance with the reporting Standards of the MBA Career Services Council.
