Pandemic or no pandemic, it would have been hard for Duke’s Fuqua School of Business Class of 2020 MBAs to match the employment rate of their immediate predecessors.

In 2019, within three months of graduation, 97{09c3c849cf64d23af04bfef51e68a1f749678453f0f72e4bb3c75fcb14e04d49} of Fuqua MBAs received jobs offers, and 95{09c3c849cf64d23af04bfef51e68a1f749678453f0f72e4bb3c75fcb14e04d49} accepted. Those are astronomical numbers, among the leaders of any top business school in the U.S., that would have been difficult to match under the best circumstances.
