  • Once you register your program for the Employer Outcomes Survey, you will be asked to upload a sample file with contact information for your graduating and recently graduated (within one year) students and choose a date on which you would like to begin fielding the student survey. Instructions for uploading your student sample will be available on the registration page.

    Once you choose a start date for your student survey, we’ll ask that you send the students a “pre-alert” email telling them that a survey invitation is coming (a template will be available on the registration page). Then, your job is done! Percept Research will send students their survey invitation on your specified date, along with two reminders during the fielding period (two and a half weeks). Employers will receive an invitation to complete their assessment one day after a student provides their contact information in their referral survey. Employers will also receive up to two reminders during their fielding period (two and a half weeks).

  • Can we use more than one year's worth of students if we would like to?

  • Hi Linda, thank you for your question!

    We are asking that you provide a sample of graduating students and/or or those that have graduated within the last year. We do this because it provides an easier frame of reference for employers who will be participating in the second phase of the study, the Employer Outcomes Assessment. They will be able to more accurately assess these students' performance pre-MBA and the impact and contributions of the degree post-graduation because they won't be thinking back as far.

  • Hello Linda and thank you very much for your question.

    We are set to start delivering the program-level toplines and verbatims (rolling depending on student fielding start) in late June and graphical reports in August. Please remember that this is contingent on student responses and employer responses.

  • Are the students and recent grads providing the employer contact information or are we expected to submit that file as well?

  • Hello Suzanne,

    Thank you very much for your question. Once your program has uploaded the student contact information, Percept Research will send all reminders to the students to submit their employer contact information.

    Therefore, once you upload the student contacts and choose a start date for your student survey, we’ll ask that you send the students a “pre-alert” email telling them that a survey invitation is coming (a template will be available on the registration page). Then, your job is done! Percept Research will send students their survey invitation on your specified date, along with two reminders during the fielding period (two and a half weeks). Employers will receive an invitation to complete their assessment one day after a student provides their contact information in their referral survey. Employers will also receive up to two reminders during their fielding period (two and a half weeks).
