    A majority of schools reported an increase in on-campus recruiting activity for full-time positions compared with the same time period last fall, according research recently conducted by the M.B.A. Career Services & Employer Alliance, formerly the M.B.A. Career Services Council.

    The findings of the Fall 2013 Recruiting Trends Survey show that both on-campus recruiting opportunities and full-time job postings have increased for most schools compared to last year.

    Forty-three percent of respondents report an increase in on-campus recruiting for full-time jobs for M.B.A. students, while 56 percent of respondents report an increase in full-time job postings.

    By industry, the strongest increase was seen in financial services, while real estate, petroleum/energy, and technology saw slight increases.

    Internship activity for M.B.A. students is positive as well, with 47 percent of respondents experiencing an increase in recruiting and 65 percent seeing an increase in job postings. The greatest increases in internship activity for M.B.A. students were seen in the financial services and technology industries.
