London Business School also reported adjusted compensation numbers for its graduates based on a Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) index from the International Monetary Fund. It is the same adjustment that The Financial Times applies to compensation numbers in its annual global MBA ranking. PPP tends to lessen the reported pay to graduates who take jobs in the U.S. and Europe and to dramatically inflate the reported pay to graduates who land positions in China, India, Africa and Latin America.
In fact, the PPP adjustment increased the median base salary of MBAs who took jobs in Asia by $39,347 so that base pay is reported as $146,341 rather than the actual pay of $106,994 (see comparisons above).
