MBA Salary and Career Information

If you aspire to lead in business, the MBA from an AACSB-accredited program is fundamental and a prerequisite at most companies. Post degree salary potential is an important consideration when choosing where you will attend graduate business school. The savvy business student also considers the return on investment (Expected Salary/Total Program Cost) and the payback period (how long it takes to recover the out of pocket program cost) of their chosen business program. 

LinkedIn and GlassDoor can serve as great resources to estimate salary potential for the job you are targeting in the geographic area you have chosen to live in.  Setting program cost against the estimated salary can help students make prudent financial choices in the selection of the best business programs that help students achieve the career outcomes.
