How Much Does an MBA Impact Earning Power?

What did my MBA ever do for me? Oh, right, it boosted my earning power by a third.

A survey by the London-based Association of MBAs, (switches to British accent) which accredits postgraduate business programs, examined the careers of MBAs who worked in Britain and abroad and found what is certainly brilliant news for British bschool grads.

"A newly minted M.B.A. can expect his or her salary to rise by 33 percent, but after 3 to 5 years the increase averaged 92 percent worldwide, and 6 to 10 years after graduation the increase averaged 151 percent"

Cheers, MBA!
