<P>32 Life is short. I like to experience as much as I can, said SMU Cox alum Marshall Hays (MBA 98) of his career change following grad school. Unlike past generations, todays professionals dont aspire to have lifelong tenures at one company that might reward their loyalty with executive pensions and endless bene?ts upon retirement. These days, without those perks of yesteryear, people change jobs fairly often — almost every ?ve years. Even todays younger baby boomers (born 1957-1964) averaged 11 different jobs before they were 46 years old, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Fortunately, the dearth of golden handcuffs has an upside. Many ambitious professionals capitalize upon this freedom to move from company to company, even industry to industry, without penalty. As long as theyre properly prepared, career switchers can enjoy a lucrative and dynamic professional life. Thus, its no surprise that MBA graduates are leveraging the recent employment trends to make career changes at an increasing rate. In fact, according to the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), 64 percent of MBAs who graduated in 2012 entered a new industry, up from 55 percent in 2011. And, as employers increase their hiring rates, they are less rigid in their quest for perfect ?ts— those prospects who already have industry experience — and are instead opening doors to business school graduates who have specialized in an area of expertise but may not necessarily have hands-on experience. Enrolling in a top-ranked MBA program can be an excellent facilitator in a career change. Even better, some schools like SMU Coxs Full-Time MBA DOORS ARE OPENING TO MBA GRADS LOOKING FOR A CAREER CHANGE 32</p> <UL><LI><a
