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

When the cost of a Full-time MBA program is comparatively lower, it would also mean the post-MBA salary would follow the same pattern. The base salary is a respectable $115,000 but when it comes down to choosing between top MBA programs, do not go by cost. Use net present value as we have demonstrated in our research guide.

If you can manage to reduce the borrowing cost, bet on the post-MBA salary and diversity of career choices. UCLA Anderson is heavily biased towards Technology, Consulting, and Finance – a pattern we have seen in other programs based in California.
