Startling New Report Regarding M.B.A. Pay

What will you get with your M.B.A.? If a new report from WSJ is correct (which it probably is) you’ll get a lot of student debt and no better luck in the job market. There is a notion that professional degrees like M.B.A.s are a sure ticket to financial success but as we see that is not the case.

From WSJ:

The M.B.A.’s lot is partly reflected in starting pay. While available figures vary by schools and employers, recruiters’ expected median salary for newly hired M.B.A.s was essentially flat between 2008 and 2011, not adjusting for inflation, according to a survey by the Graduate Management Admission Council.

For graduates with minimal experience—three years or less—median pay was $53,900 in 2012, down 4.6% from 2007-08, according to an analysis conducted for The Wall Street Journal by PayScale.com. Pay fell at 62% of the 186 schools examined.

Even for more seasoned grads the trend is similar, says Katie Bardaro, lead economist for PayScale.com. “In general, it seems that M.B.A. pay is either stagnant or falling,” she says.
