Why Earn Your Online MBA?

MBA Grads Put Ideas Into Action

< >

What separates market leaders from their competition? The key differentiator is the ability to innovate. Businesses failing to think ahead run the risk of falling behind. Just as businesses can lose ground in a competitive marketplace, so can you.

Graduating with a top-ranked MBA degree can equip you with the foundation necessary to thrive in a global economy where change is the norm, rather than the exception.

Employers worldwide are looking for management professionals with the proven ability to identify new opportunities for innovation, improve performance and sustain growth. They see hiring MBA degree holders as a smart investment, and they’ll pay a premium for professionals who hold the credential. In fact, a recent survey of corporate recruiters conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council concluded that hiring rates for business school graduates are the highest they’ve been in five years.

More specifically, the survey showed:

80% of companies plan to hire an MBA graduate in 2014, up from 50 percent in 2009 and 73 percent in 2013.

The projected median base salary for MBAs in the United States in 2014 is $95,000. This represents a $45,000 premium over recent bachelor degree recipients, who will earn a median of $50,000.

Annual base salaries for MBA hires in 2014 are expected to increase at or above the rate of inflation.
