NYU Stern Full-time MBA Salary Job Function & Industry (2017)

True to its reputation, NYU Stern attracted the most offers in the Financial Services industry (35.3%) with Investment Banking (28.2%) the most popular sub-group in the industry. Consulting was the second most popular industry (28.5%) while for the third position it is a close race between Consumer Packaged Goods and Technology/Telecommunication, both attracting 8-9% of the class. Candidates followed the post-MBA salary, as is evident from the total salary where Consulting ($166,904) and Financial Services ($166,707) fetched the best pay. As expected, the lowest paid industry was non-profit ($92,500 – total salary). However, other industries crossed the $100,000 total salary but surprisingly the median base salary for Media/Entertainment was $95,000 despite New York’s stronghold as a media hub. The transition from traditional to social media is evident from the lower demand and compensation in the media industry.
