GMAC Demonstration Interactive Data Report & Benchmark

The GMAC Demonstration Interactive Data Report & Benchmark Report

This is an instructional demonstration tool, designed to show you how to use the Interactive Data Reports and Benchmark Reports that accompany the GMAC mba.com Prospective Students, Application Trends, Corporate Recruiters, and Alumni Perspectives Surveys. The results presented here are for demonstration purposes only, and do not represent actual survey results.

One of the many benefits of participating in GMAC surveys is access to Interactive Data Reports and Benchmark Reports. These easy-to-use online reports are available only to participating schools and survey respondents.

What is the Interactive Data Report? Each Interactive Data Report provides overall survey results, as well as findings by key demographic variables such as age, gender, program type, world region, industry, class year, etc. The graphic image to the right is a screen shot taken from the 2015 Corporate Recruiters Survey Data Report. It was configured to show 2015 employer hiring projections overall for all respondents (blue columns) compared with hiring projections for employers located in the Asia-Pacific region (yellow columns).

What is the Benchmark Report? The Benchmark Report compares the responses associated with your program with the responses (in aggregate) of 5 or more participating programs of your choice. The Benchmark Report tool allows you to create a maximum of five separate benchmark reports, but once created, they can be saved and will be available to you indefinitely, each time you access them.

Use these queries to compare survey responses from your program with those of your direct competitors, programs you hope to compete with, or those in a particular region. The choices are yours!
