MBA Salary

A quantitative analysis of data provided by the US corporate recruiters surveyed during 2002-2006.


This paper examines MBA salary through year-to-year comparisons of the average expected starting salaries for new professional hires from MBA programs reported by corporate recruiters. The starting salaries of new hires from MBA programs are compared with the starting salaries of new hires from other graduate programs. Regional breakdowns and changes to the Consumer Price Index are also examined to compare salary against potential variations in the cost of living over time.
