Does it matter where you attend business school? Absolutely! Yes! Name brand B-schools will open doors, provide to you with opportunities for success and help you establish be a part of a global connection of business graduates.
Over the last 4 months, my team and I had the opportunity to tour and visit over 60 U.S. business schools. With tuition ranging from $51,000 (University of Texas at Austin) to ($75,000) Harvard. From these numbers, you obviously want the best return on investment. After all, why attend business school and not ultimately become one of the masters of industry?
What we discovered was that the Mean starting salary and bonus: This is the average starting salary and bonus of 2017 graduates of a full-time MBA program and the Employment rates for full-time MBA program graduates: This is the employment rate for 2017 graduates of a full-time MBA program were higher for the top schools.
What does this all mean: When you attend a top U.S. business school, it’s more likely that you will have the opportunity to be a part of a rarefied professional, entrepreneurial and alumni network and make more money!
