The MBA Bump: How Much Of a Pay Increase Can You Expect?


You may have taken a vow of poverty in business school. Once you graduate, that vow is out the window.

Let’s face it: You didn’t give up two well-paying work years to simply drink beer, make friends, and learn arcane business models. Eventually, a big pay-off will be coming your way.

So how much of a pay increase can you expect (and when)? Those were two questions answered by a 2012 study from the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC). In their study, GMAC found that the Class of 2012 could expect a 9% bump in salary over graduates from 2011. But GMAC also reported plenty more, such as which industries were paying the best and which job search methods were yielding the best results. And they even shared which program types were seeing the highest increases in annual base salaries over a six year period. Interested in learning more?
