MBA Salary and Career Information

Not everyone ends up a member of the C-suite, but if you aspire to lead in business, the MBA is a fundamental requirement at most companies. We advise students to calculate their return on investment (ROI) by using average earnings potential from resources like LinkedIn and GlassDoor for the geographic area you plan to be living in; divide the cost of the degree investment (including interest if you finance) by the incremental raises you might achieve with the degree after five years and that should tell you how long it will take you to recoup your investment.
