Business school is a profitable investment for almost anyone, but some MBAs are getting more dollar value out of their degrees than others.
MBAs who worked in financial services several years out of school earned more than their peers in every other industry, and the best paychecks overall were doled out by investment banking firm Morgan Stanley, a Bloomberg survey of thousands of B-School alumni showed.
Bloomberg News reports that as part of our annual ranking of business schools, Bloomberg surveyed 12,773 professionals six to eight years after they graduated from business school.
The MBAs who work at Morgan Stanley took home the largest compensation packages, followed closely by alums at Goldman Sachs.
Bloomberg asked alumni who graduated from 2007 through 2009 about their current employer, base salary, and bonus. To figure out who pays the most, we focused on companies where we polled at least 20 MBAs. Graduates working in finance which includes people in accounting and banking took home a median $210,000.
