The MBA CSEA report provides you with real time reporting on any class (post-graduation or internship) for all tables in the MBA CSEA report. You can generate and export the entire report to excel, or view individual tables directly on the platform.

There are a number of guidelines one must keep in mind when reconciling the MBA CSEA report. The following info-graphic explains the data eligibility and cut-off date requirements set by the  MBA CSEA Standards (you can download a copy of the standards from the link at the end of this article):

  1. The data collection cut off is set to a relative date of one month past the final three month post graduation reporting date. For example if the final graduation date of the reporting year is s June 1, the three month post graduation reporting date is September 1 and the end of the data collection period for that reporting year is October 1. Please make sure that your graduation dates are set correctly. Instructions for how to do so are located here
  2. Total Seeking Employment does not include students which are company-sponsored, continuing education, postponing job search, starting a new business, or not seeking for other reasons.
  3. Students who have not reported a work authorization are included in the totals, but not in the breakdowns. When reviewing student information, make sure to check that a student's work authorization has been designated within the platform.
  4. Students who have an Accepted Offer with an unknown acceptance date are counted as having not reported by three months after graduation.
  5. Check records to be sure that there are no job records that are classified as "received" or "declined" but have an accepted date written in. This will result in an error within the system and will skew reporting figures.
  6. Please be aware that students who have zero or null listed for their compensation figures are listed in the applicable reports. To exclude them from reporting, adjust your reporting settings. Additionally, check compensation records to make sure that these figures make sense for the amount and pay period specified(i.e. a student having a salary listed as $125,000 monthly or $40 annually was probably entered in error).

  7. Please be aware that students who do not have information listed for the function, industry, or geography sections of their job record, or students without background information such as undergraduate major and years of experience, will not be listed in the applicable reports that sort by that data.
  8. Make sure to be aware of the students who have multiple job intentions within a class. If a student has a sponsored job, continuing education, an own venture or some other type of record that would be considered not seeking employment, this might counter an accepted/received job listed on the system. Make sure that the appropriate seeking intention is being reflected in the system. The student tracking page filter, "Multiple Intentions," will give you the ability to view these students.
  9. I/D refers to instances with insufficient data. MBA Standard guidelines require a minimum of three data points for each category and that the number of data points is equal to or greater than one percent of full-time graduates seeking employment.
  • For example, if you have 100 students in your class, and 2 only students report offers under Human Resources, Table 4.B - "Compensation by Professional Functions," will show an "I/D" for Human Resources, and include the 2 students in the "Other" category.
