GME Student Exit Survey | Overview

MBA Student Exit Survey This GME exit survey provides a clear picture of perceptions of exiting students on a range of attributes including: faculty, curriculum, teaching methods, and measuring learning and ROI outcomes.

What is the GME Student Exit Study?

The Student Exit Study enables graduate management education (GME) programs to assess the level of satisfaction and loyalty of graduating students on a wide range of program attributes, identify areas for program improvement, and help measure change over time.

This survey can be administered via a print or web-based survey. MBA and specialized master's programs can compare their results with all other programs participating in the survey and with self-selected “peer” programs to provide valuable competitive intelligence information.

What kind of questions are asked?

The outgoing student questionnaire is comprised of five components:

  1. Rating the GME experience on a range of attributes including Faculty, Curriculum, Teaching Methods, Functional Areas, and Administration 
  2. Learning outcomes assessment
  3. Evaluation of GME student return-on-investment
  4. Open-ended questions regarding strengths, weaknesses, and suggestions for improvement
  5. GME student loyalty ratings
  6. Demographic information so that respondents can be classified for analysis

This questionnaire is designed to provide a clear picture of student perceptions about their academic experience empowering GME programs to focus attention on strengths and areas of improvement as well as develop a competitive benchmark for peers. Schools can also insert custom questions at the end of the core questionnaire.
