Can I get my benchmark report earlier?

My MBA program graduates near the beginning of the fielding year. Can I get my benchmark report earlier?

Percept Research provides an Advance Competitive Intelligence Report option for programs that graduate earlier in the fielding year. The Advance Competitive Intelligence Report is in the same format as the standard Competitive Intelligence Report, but the data are benchmarked to data collected in the previous fielding cycle so we can provide you with industry comparisons closer to your outtake date.

The fee for the Advance Competitive Intelligence Report (ACIR) is also identical to the standard Competitive Intelligence Report (CIR) — basically, you will receive your report earlier with comparisons to the previous fielding year. This report will not include comparisons to any new questions recently added in the new fielding year (e.g., a new question in 2009-10 will not have comparisons to 2010-11 data). However, you will have the option to purchase the standard Competitive Intelligence Report delivered at the end of the fielding year at a discounted price if you want to compare to all of the currently participating programs.

Programs that choose to receive the ACIR in lieu of the CIR benchmarking to data collected from the current year will receive the ACIR within one month of closing their survey and must alert their project manager of this request.
