The Value of Your MBA Investment

An MBA degree is one of the best investments you can make for your future. The possibilities of career advancement, a higher salary and more fulfilling job opportunities make earning an MBA a wise move for current and aspiring business professionals.

The median starting salary for MBA graduates is nearly double that for those with bachelor's degrees, according to the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC).1 And earning an MBA also provides these financial benefits:

  • On average, MBA graduates with more than seven years of experience can earn more than $150,000 per year, while those with more than 10 years of experience can earn $200,000 per year or more2
  • According to a 2016 survey by GMAC, graduate business school alumni earn a median of $2.5 million in total base salary over 20 years after graduation3
  • On average, alumni earn back their MBA investment less than four years after graduation, GMAC reports3

Another key benefit of the Online MBA is the ability to continue to work while you pursue your degree, which helps mitigate some of the associated costs.. And the CSUMB program even saves you money and time by eliminating the need to take the GMAT for acceptance. You can also apply up to six units of transfer credits for your program, which can save you even more and help you earn your MBA more quickly.
