Vendor Standards Compliance

Many vendors in the MBA marketplace provide products that allow schools to enter their student and/or aggregate level employment data in order to produce reports. It is to the benefit of our membership to know which of these vendors are using the copyrighted Standards for Reporting MBA Employment Statistics in the correct way in order to ensure the reports are Standards-compliant. 

Our Vendor Standards Compliance program allows participating vendors to undergo a thorough review of their technology by a third party firm to ensure that the reports produced are Standards-compliant.

The following are Approved Standards Vendors for 2015/2016, V.5 of the Standards (in effect through the class of 2017 - students graduating between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017).

Vendors are currently in the process of becoming compliant with the current version of the Full-time MBA Standards (V.6), as well as the Part-time MBA and Specialty Masters Standards. Check with each vendor for an update on the process and an estimated timeline for completion.
