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 2019 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.

The Job-Seeking Class is the denominator for employment statistics. This is how we calculate the Job-Seeking Class in accord with the Standards.

Total Graduating MBA Class Less: Students not seeking employment (sponsored, already employed, continuing education, postponed search, starting new business as owner or co-owner) and/or students for whom no information is available. This equals: Job-Seeking Class
