Business Career Median Salary and Signing Bonus for MBA Students in the Class of 2008

We collected median salary and bonus by business area for graduates from the top MBA programs in the last year where data have been reported - 2008.

 

 

Given the tough job market today these salaries may be above what is obtainable - particularly in the finance field.

Bear in mind that some of these higher paying areas may have either very long work hours or pressurized working conditions. Thus, on a per hour basis these professions aren't necessarily the highest paid.

To state the obvious, you need money to survive and thrive but it is not everything. If you can find a profession that is truly engaging for you then taking top dollar for your services may be somewhat less important.

The highest compensation came in finance and strategy positions. Hedge funds jobs and private equity jobs are well paid but very tough to break into. Investment banking and consulting jobs are also well paid and somewhat easier to break into.
