The data show that 52 percent of female business majors who graduated this year had been offered a job by January, compared with 57 percent of male students.

The students were surveyed as a part of Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2014 Undergraduate Business School Rankings, released in April, but the information on job offers was not public until now.
