Which student outcomes are included in the MBA CSEA report?

  • Employment offers accepted by 90 days after the student’s graduation date.
  • Outcomes reported by 120 days after the student’s graduation date.
  • Outcomes not specifically excluded from reporting.
  • Inclusion of unapproved outcomes, rumor jobs, and exchange students depend on your site settings.


***What to check for if a student outcome is unexpectedly missing from (or added to) the 12Twenty prepared MBA CSEA report?

  • Check dates. Ensure relevant dates are within the defined reporting windows.  Job offers must have have an Accepted Date no later than 90 days after a student’s graduation date.  All outcomes must have a Reported Date no later than 120 days after a student’s graduation date.

  • Included? Check the student’s profile and ensure the outcome is included in reporting:

  • Site Settings. See if rumor jobs, unapproved jobs, and exchange students are included in reporting. Ensure the student / outcome in question corresponds with your settings.











***Tip: To quickly determine student outcomes that were excluded due to being outside the 90 day post-graduation offer acceptance window, build a Custom Outcome Report with a filter for the grad year & term in question and Offer Accepted Date > the 90th day after graduation.  The same can be done for the 120 day reporting window and a Reported Date filter greater than the 120th day after graduation.  Instructions below:

  1. Navigate to your Custom Reports tab

  2. Create New Report → Outcome Report





  1. Job Phase = Post MBA

  2. Include Unreported Students? = Yes

  3. Use the left to right arrows in the center of the screen to select the data columns to be displayed in your report.  Considering this report will be used to determine which offers fell outside a given date range, we strongly suggest including some basic information about the offer (Employer and Job Title) along with all available date information.














  1. Add filter for student graduation year and term.

  2. Add filter for Offer Accepted Date with a range beginning on the 91st day after graduation.  No closing date for the range is necessary.  This will result in a filter that includes all offers for the 91st date and later.

    1. In the example below, the selected filters will result in a report that includes all Spring 2017 graduates who Accepted Offers on or after Aug. 14, 2017 (91 days after a sample graduation date of May 15, 2017).

    2. To run a similar report checking for a student’s report date, remove the Offer Accepted Date filter and replace it with Reported Date on or after the 121st day after graduation.

  3. Generate Report.
