Which MBAs have the best return on investment ?


We have analysed salary data from 339 Bankers working in London.

MBAs' tuition fees come from The Economist or from university websites.
Average salaries for Front office professionals with 5-10 years of experience.

Top MBAs have very similar impacts on bankers' salaries : there is only a 9% gap between Booth's best paying MBA and LBS'


But what a range of fees! With up to a 40% gap between HBS and Oxford;this has a huge impact on the time that one needs to recoup the costs (up to one additional year)


A long term play : beyond the short term value of an MBA (VPs with an MBA earn 7% more than non MBAs), the immeasurable value of an MBA comes from the network it provides, which pays off throughout a career
