Stanford MBAs Shift Away From Tech

The $170,000 median base salary for MBAs going into private equity was the first increase in years. As far back as 2008, when Wall Street began to crumble and start the Great Recession, the median rate for an MBA hire in the industry has been $150,000. This year the PE industry got the largest percentage of grads from Stanford since 2011 when 14% of the class went into private equity.
