Of M.B.A. students who will graduate this spring from Iowa State University, 65 percent of those searching for a job have received at least one job offer, according to a university news release.

That is an improvement from a year ago, said Mark Peterson, director of graduate career services for the College of Business.

That follows national trends, as 76 percent of schools across the country have reported steady growth in the job market, according to the MBA Career Services Council.
