MBA Salary Growth Financial CrisisPost MBA Salary remains a critical criterion for selecting Business Schools. We have analyzed the data from Financial Times Global MBA Ranking, and found some interesting trends on salary growth for top MBA programs before and after two financial crisis – IT Crash of 2001 and Financial Meltdown of 2008.

The analysis is based on the weighted salary data collected by FT. The Weighted Salary in $ is the average salary earned by MBA Alumnus after three years of graduation, adjusted against variations across different industries. This means that the weighted salary collected in 2013 is the salary earned by a 2009 graduated MBA student.

PHD in Engineering fetches the largest starting salary of $71,742, followed by PHD in Pharmacy and PHD in law.
