Graduate management grads surveyed report 100% ROI after 4 years

January 17, 2012

According to the Graduate Management Admission Council's latest Alumni Perspectives Survey, responding graduates recouped a third of the financial investment in their degree within the first year after graduation, and 100% in the 4 years following graduation. The survey also found a narrower gender wage gap for business school graduates. For example, female graduates of full-time MBA programs who took the survey received starting salaries equivalent to 85% of the earnings their male peers drew, on average. By contrast, women earn just 77 cents for every dollar earned by men when the total US workforce is taken into account, according to the US Census Bureau. GMAC News Release
