We are seeing a rapid change in the career outlook for mba professionals. However, the story on the educational front is quite different. In the year 2006 there were 255,788 students who graduated from mba degree programs across the country, while in the year 2010, there were 265,591 students graduating from mba schools.

This represents a 4% change in 4 years. The growth nationally for students graduating from institutions of higher learning in general has been 12% from 2006 to 2010. Thus, the growth in the number of students graduating from mba courses is less than the change in the number of students graduating in all disciplines in the US.
