Overview & Distinctions

Overview

The Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC), the global nonprofit council of business schools, recently reported that “more than a decade of research … reveals two truths — business school graduates are highly employable and they credit their degrees for the opportunity to advance their careers.”

A worldwide survey of MBA program graduates found:

  • 92% of graduates agreed that their MBA prepared them to take on leadership roles in their organization,
  • 87% of graduates stated that their MBA helped them advance faster in their careers,
  • 86% said that getting an MBA increased their earning potential,
  • 95% felt that earning an MBA clearly impacted their career in a positive way so much that they’d recommend a graduate business education to other people.

Careers

Almost anyone who’s a professional or aspires to a professional career can benefit from earning their MBA. Earning an MBA can have a huge impact on your future opportunities and can help you learn the skills you’ll need to succeed in nearly any profession.

Studies evaluating  the impact an MBA has on a professional’s career has shown that earning an MBA is one of the best investments you can make in your future.

  • Bloomberg’s survey of 6,400 MBA graduates found that those who used their MBA to switch careers enjoyed a median pay increase of $55,000. Their survey also found that those who stayed in the same field still enjoyed a median $47,000 salary increase.
  • A GMAC survey of students in their final year of business school found that 62% of students about to graduate who were looking for a job had an offer of employment before graduation. Students who planned on staying with their current employer reported expecting an average 36% salary increase after completing their degrees.
  • The Financial Times annual survey of MBA graduates found that, on the average, three years after graduation MBA grads saw their salaries increase between approximately 50% to as much as 145%, depending on the age when they began their MBA.
  • Earning your MBA can provide greater benefits than just a potential increase in salary. It can also provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to thrive in an increasingly uncertain world. As Alison Goggin, Executive Director of MBA Admissions at the NYU Stern School of Business explained in TIME magazine recently, an MBA is essential for professionals who want to thrive in today’s economy:  “We live in a constantly evolving world. Companies are changing the way they do things. New industries and types of companies are emerging. Having an MBA will ensure you are prepared to flourish in this environment. An MBA gives you a broad base of business knowledge, the confidence and the network to embark on any kind of opportunity, whether it’s at your current organization, a new one or in your own business.”
