The Duke University MMS program just recently released their 2013 placement stats for the graduating class and they continue to impress. Duke has a well established masters in management program that has been placing students into a wide range of career paths for many years now. This program appeals to a variety of students because of the broader field of study and amazing reputation of Duke University.
A few highlights from this years report:
Salary Range – $15,000 – $95,000
Timing of 1st job offer – November – 87% (of those seeking employment)
- Finance – 31%
- Consulting – 29%
- Marketing – 19%
- Other – 16%
- General Management – 5%
There are a lot of big name employers on the list, including a bunch of banks and consulting firms. I also find it nice the level of detail that Duke provides. Placements are always one of the most important aspects of the decision making process and being able to have a clear and concise report year after year really helps when making up ones mind.
I posted last year about the 2012 Duke MMS placements for anyone interested in checking out how the program has done historically. Last year was similar to this year, a wide variety of big name employers and a range of career paths undertaken by graduating students.
I have also posted a student perspective as well as other posts on the Duke program. This is always a work in progress as I am constantly trying to get additional content for everyone to help in the decision making process. You can find them all here.
