Infographic: Not Your Typical MBA

 It’s safe to say, MBA students aren’t what they used to be. Today, students arrive on the campus of graduate business schools with a more diverse background and broader career paths than ever before. And by the time they graduate, they’re not just interested in careers in finance and consulting.
