    It’s hard to draw any conclusion without the bonuses matching each salary, too bad schools don’t mention that. I guess the UCLA guy with a $10k base salary in PE/VC must have a monumental bonus.

    Will we have a more meaningful table, i.e. median/std dev salaries of each school?

    If he’s in PE/VC, he probably negotiated a percentage of the fund’s carried interest, possibly in addition to a bonus. That $10K compensation number is most likely crap.

    “Instead, it was an thirty-something” – “a thirty-something”, surely.

    Love the site.

    world is build like this …. monkeys sit and make lot more money than working group..this should change, technology shall be given more importance than executers

    Hmmm

    6 digit salaries plus bonuses and perks for graduating MBA’s from the top 20 schools in the world is hardly news. In fact big bucks for top MBA’s isn’t really news at all. So what was the point again? It reads more like a 2 minute commercial from a PR firm trying to drum up business. It almost has the sound of desperation, and perhaps a bit of longing for the good old days when a Harvard MBA actually was solid gold………

    These days it is common knowledge that being the best and brightest usually doesn’t get you into these MBA programs. And perhaps the salaries are beginning to reflect this.
