DON’T MISS: WHAT CLASS OF 2016 MBAS MADE IN THEIR FIRST YEAR OF WORK

  • MBA hopeless

    Go Irish!!

  • WittyUsername4

    Maybe it’s a typo and he meant to report that he was being compensated 150? Or maybe the IRS is after him. We could speculate all day

  • MBA Hopeful II

    I know a person with a base salary of $1.51M last year from Booth, but it was never reported in the employment report.

  • Come on

    I call bullshit

  • MBA Hopeful

    I know a person with a base salary of $1.5M last year from Wharton, but it was never reported in the employment report.

  • truth

    Or maybe they don’t realize in Africa that McCombs is actually a decent school?

  • OG

    The McCombs grad accepted $15,000? I’ve lived overseas in Africa. That is an insult of a salary even for a nonprofit considering the value of an MBA. My guess is the job they got either doesn’t NEED an MBA or they went to work for a delusional organization like the One Acre Fund.
