Employment Data System

MBA Career Services & Employer Alliance is pleased to collaborate with AACSB International (AACSB) for the collection and analysis of MBA employment data. 

Since our founding in 1994, we have benefitted from a strong relationship with AACSB, who provided support in the beginning of our organization’s development. We are pleased to take this relationship to the next level as we work together on this initiative. 
 
Currently AACSB maintains the most comprehensive database on business schools from around the world.  Sourced globally by schools, researchers, and the media, this database provides extensive information on enrollment, programming, operations, students, career outcomes, and much more. Through our deeper collaboration and continued work with the AACSB, both MBA CSEA and AACSB members will benefit from enhanced benchmarking and reporting tools, as well as the convenience of a centralized place to enter employment data for both organizations. 
 
As leaders within our respective markets, MBA CSEA and AACSB are excited to work together to establish a global, comprehensive, and centralized employment data dissemination resource. We look forward to our continued work with the AACSB and providing our members with critical MBA employment data.

Next Steps for c/o 2016 data entry
As a result of our collaboration, in December 2014 AACSB added a new MBA CSEA module within the Business School Questionnaire (BSQ) Employment Module in Data Direct, where AACSB members enter their schoolwide employment data. MBA CSEA member schools have been assigned one contact who was provided access to enter data into the MBA CSEA Module. This is in addition to any existing contacts your school may already have within AACSB’s system which may be in your Dean's office, etc. If you don't know who your designated contact is or would like to change your contact, please contact us.
 
Once your school’s main contact accesses the system, he/she will be able to designate additional contacts who can enter data into the MBA CSEA module. Your school’s contact(s) will be able to add employment data into just the MBA CSEA module, or in any other areas within the BSQ Employment Module for which you have information.

All MBA CSEA designated contacts received instructions from AACSB about how to enter their c/o 2016 data into the system when the survey opens on October 3, 2016. If no one from your school received these instructions, please contact us.

New earlier data entry timeframe
In order to better facilitate our Agreed Upon Procedures (AUP) program, the data entry timeframe for the c/o 2016 has been moved earlier. The MBA CSEA data entry module will be open from October 3 - December 2, 2016.
 
Why should you enter data in the new system?
The MBA CSEA module within the AACSB Business School Questionnaire replaces our previous employment data system that was housed by Symplicity (prior to 2014). Entering data into the MBA CSEA Module is required in order to participate in the Agreed Upon Procedures program.
 
Entering data into the module will also provide schools with the ability to benchmark across other schools and compare data by geographic region as well as other data points. MBA CSEA members will receive access to special comprehensive benchmarking reports. 
 
Email communications
As part of our collaboration, the designated contact from your school will receive email reminders about the survey from AACSB. If you do not wish to receive these emails, please contact us
