Standards Compliance Review

Since 2005, MBA CSEA has been conducted Standards Compliance Reviews to increase knowledge of the Standards and improve interpretation by a broad and diverse audience. Each year, member schools have the opportunity to enter data into our Employment Data System and elect to make it eligible for an external review. 20 schools are randomly selected from those who are eligible. A third party firm reviews their data and data collection processes in comparison with the Standards to recommend ways the school can improve. MBA CSEA publishes the list of schools who elect to be eligible for a review. The list of schools that are selected and participate, and the results from the reviews, remain confidential and are not shared with other schools.

Why Participate?

Schools that are eligible for a Standards Compliance Review are making an external statement that their data is collected according to the Standards and that they are open to their data collection processes being evaluated by a third party.

Schools that make their data eligible for a review benefit from...
  • External acknowledgment that their employment data is collected using agreed upon Standards and is accurate and comparable with other schools
  • Tips for how to improve data collection processes
  • Public recognition by MBA CSEA, as well as rankings institutions such as U.S. News & World Report and the Financial Times
For more information about the process, please contact our Standards Consultant, Beth Ursin.

How to Participate

Enter your data into the MBA CSEA Employment Data System when the call for entries is distributed each year. On the survey, you will see a question asking if your school would like to participate in the review program. By checking this box, you are agreeing to participate in a Compliance Review, if selected. Please note that no exceptions are provided once the selections are made. Please be sure you are authorized to make this decision on behalf of your school.
