Each year, the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) conducts a plethora of surveys on subjects ranging from application trends to prospective students’ opinions. The organization recently released the results of its 2016 Alumni Perspectives Survey, which gathers data from business school alumni around the world.

The top three fields were quite even: products/services tied for the number-one spot with finance/accounting, both claiming 19% of respondents. Technology was second with 17%, while government/nonprofit trailed closely behind with 11%.
