Survey: 42 percent of Master in Management students receive financial aid

Published: 7 October 2016 | by Thomas Graf

Two out of five Master in Management students receive financial aid such as merit-based or need-based scholarships. This is a result of the new GMAC Application Trends Survey whose Master in Management (MIM) sub-part was conducted among 48 programs in 14 countries.

How international are Master in Management students?

The survey also reveals some interesting insights in the internationality of MIM candidates. More than half, in fact, come from the country where the business school is located. Two thirds of the MIM candidates applying for US programs come from the US, and two thirds of the MIM candidates applying for European programs come from Europe.

This tendency of choosing a business school within the wider geographic region may also be the reason why 57 percent of the schools explicitly engage in marketing and recruitment activities vis-à-vis international students.
