According to a recent GMAT study from mba.com, 76 percent of employers plan to hire MBA graduates. If you are a recruiter from one of those companies, you want the three letters by their names to mean more than an academic degree. You want them to have the knowledge base, practical skill set developed through real-world experiences and the global perspective necessary to make an immediate and meaningful contribution to your company's bottom line.
The MBA program at the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University, recently ranked #55 by Bloomberg Businessweek, prepares our students to do just that. Our curriculum combines theoretical teaching with hands-on application--providing you with employees who can put ideas into action, think critically, manage ambiguity and solve complex problems.

That means Fortune 100 companies are looking to the Whitman School to deliver their next generation of business leaders.
