Read This Before You Get Your MBA

Is an MBA always worth the effort?

Short answer: no.

That’s not to say you shouldn’t go to graduate school; only that it’s not for everyone.

Going to grad school is a major decision. It requires a certain investment of time, money and energy. And even though it amps up your professional credentials and carries with it a promise of a higher salary, those reasons alone may not be enough.

If you’re considering pursuing a Master of Business Administration or an online MBA, there are few essentials you should know.

But first, it might be helpful to know how MBA graduates feel about the degree.

According to the Graduate Management Admission Council® (GMAT), 2012 Alumni Perspectives Survey Report:

  • 94% are employed either through an employer (87%) or self-employed (7%)
  • Their median average salary is $95,000, with additional compensation averaging $18,123.
  • On average, MBA graduates say they have recouped one-third of their financial investment immediately after graduation, and saw a 100% return on investment (ROI) four years after graduating.


What matters most when choosing a master’s program? Compare features, benefits and cost to find the right school for you.
