As Western economies continue to reel from recent financial strife, there are mixed views from the business school world on how current global economic events will affect the future MBA job market around the globe.
Overall job opportunities in the US are currently at their lowest in 11 months, with the US Labor Department announcing on Friday that the economy failed to add any new jobs during August. In Europe, the continued threat of numerous eurozone nations defaulting on their debt repayments has many economists now fearing the collapse of the euro currency, which if made a reality could spell a huge decline in future job opportunities around the continent.
In terms of MBA job opportunities though, the future appears to be more promising.
The upcoming QS TopMBA.com Jobs and Salary Trends Report 2011/12 has found that MBA job opportunities throughout the world have increased during the past year, and are set to increase in the next 12 months.
