The Naveen Jindal School of Management MBA: What You Need To Know
Though small — 50 students — the Jindal School of Management program has a big advantage: we are part of a BIG school. Everyone from program directors to career counselors knows your name, but you also have big-school customization — 13 double-degree options, more than 200 electives, multiple case competition opportunities, bi-weekly company site visits, more than 100 companies visiting campus each semester.
Our condensed, 53 semester credit-hour curriculum allows students to minimize the opportunity cost of attending graduate school and to more quickly resume professional careers. Students have the opportunity to specialize in one of 15 concentrations and to also complete two graduate degrees for a minimum of 63 credit hours by adding one of our 13 specialized Master of Science degrees.
Students also can meet with their own executive mentor. Plus, alumni are actively involved with current students throughout their MBA journey. Students also have opportunities to develop lasting relationships with faculty, who are regularly recognized as the top thought leaders and researchers in their respective fields.
In 2017, U.S. News & World Report recognized the Jindal School program as the leader in salary-to-debt ratio for full-time MBA grads throughout the country. Affordable tuition and generous scholarships — 80 percent of the incoming class this year received an award package valued at just under half the total program cost — make this possible.
Full-time MBA graduates with our average of 5 years work experience can expect an average starting salary of $90,000 to $100,000, with more experienced professionals commanding higher salaries. When unburdened from debt, our graduates have the flexibility to follow their passions and to start enjoying their MBA salary — sometimes as soon as they receive their signing bonus.
