As a keen and diligent potential business school candidate, one question you are likely asking yourself is: What is the ROI (Return on Investment) on an MBA in today’s economy? One might consider the cost of the MBA (primarily tuition and lost income during the years you are not working) versus potential gain – salary expectation upon graduation and growth thereafter. And rightly so. In today’s economy, nothing is certain, and you want to make sure that you are getting value for your investment in further education – a good business school student would expect no less. B-schools are keenly aware of this, jockeying for rankings every year in Forbes and The Financial Times in order to appeal to the minds (and wallets) of the best and brightest candidates.
