Also have data that take into account such criteria as experience, geography, business school , where he graduated graduate . But the median salary is quite difficult to deduce because some data are difficult to trace , and some significantly distort the overall rate .

For example , the age of an MBA graduate , whether the people in the new field or decided to do an MBA after 20 years of service and returned to his place of work, or, for example , salaries billionaires who distort very average.

The level of wages by occupation

Official position of MBA graduates is almost the same ( respectively , and the level of taxation ), despite the differences depending on the scope of activities. The most highly paid position of MBAs - financiers, the average annual income ranging from $ 92.802 to $ 166.066 . According to PayScale, the gap is due to the peculiarities of this scope and level of competence of the employee. General managers , production managers and directors take the next step with an average annual income of $ 120,000 to $ 130,000 . Salary level CFO or IT administrator is $ 75,000 - $ 100,000 , senior financial analyst or HR manager - about $ 80,000 .

Wage level by areas

If we compare the performance level salary of MBA graduates in different fields of activity , the need for this is another technique with other indicators . The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) in 2006 conducted a study according to which at the expiration of one year after the MVA highest salary is received by health workers - about $ 111,000 per year. Behind them - the financial sector workers ( $ 103.122 ) , consulting ( $ 101.736 ) , energy and public services ( $ 100.263 ) , hi-tech ( $ 98.621 ) , manufacturing ( $ 98.417 ) , retail products and services ( $ 94.558 ) and non-commercial and the public sector ( $ 73.125 ) . But , as noted earlier , the data may be slightly skewed , because in some areas - especially in health care - a large number of experienced workers is already highly paid professionals who have decided to get an MBA . The level of their wages are much higher than other MBAs .
