Is Salary the Biggest Factor with M.B.A. Students Ready to Graduate?

The answer is 'No!' Based on Aspen Institute Center for Business Education, the Things That Matter are:

Challenging responsibilities 64%
Salary 48%
Work-life balance 45%
Contribution to society 26%
Colleagues whom I respect 24%
Training and development 24%
Rapid advancement 22%
Travel/International work 18%
High ethical standards 13%
Job security 4%

Surprised to see Job Security last on the list? This is acceptance of an uncertain future in the world of work!
