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 continue this positive collaboration as we work together on this initiative. Through our connection with the AACSB, MBA CSEA and AACSB members benefit from enhanced benchmarking and reporting tools, as well as the convenience of a centralized place to enter employment data for both organizations.

Next Steps for c/o 2017 data entry

MBA CSEA members enter their full-time MBA employment data within the Business School Questionnaire (BSQ) Employment Module in Data Direct, where AACSB members also enter their schoolwide employment data (note: you do not have to be a member of AACSB to enter data in the MBA CSEA section).

MBA CSEA member schools have been assigned one primary 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, or orhter departments. 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 may designate additional contacts who can enter data into the MBA CSEA section. Your school’s contact(s) will be able to add employment data into just the MBA CSEA section, or in any other areas within the AACSB BSQ Employment Module for which you have information.

All MBA CSEA designated contacts received an email from AACSB about regarding entering theird ata into the system on October 9, 2017. If no one from your school received this email, please contact us.

Note about data entry: We recommmend that someone from your Career Services office enter your data in the MBA CSEA section. This will allow you to answer questions and provide additional information needed as part of the validation process. 

The deadline to enter your c/o 2017 data into the MBA CSEA section is December 8. 

Why should you enter data in the MBA CSEA Employment Data System?

Entering data into the MBA CSEA section provides you with access to the following:
  • 2017-18 BSQ Employment Module Overview Reports (aggregate statistics for all data entered into the system)  
  • 2017-18 BSQ Employment Module Custom Benchmarking and Quick Reports (including school-specific MBA CSEA Standards-compliant reports) 

Data entry is also required in order to participate in the Standards Compliance Review (formerly AUP) program. Please note that by selecting "yes" to making your data eligible for a review, your school is agreeing to participate in a Compliance Review if selected. There will not be an exceptions provided once the selections are made. Please be sure you have discussed the review process with your colleagues, and that you are authorized to make this decision on behalf or your school.
