How Much Does an MBA Increase Your Salary?

Beyond the increase in base salary, MBA graduates often benefit from a range of additional perks, including signing bonuses, performance bonuses, and stock options, which collectively boost their total annual earnings.

  • The MBA Difference

    An MBA can make it easier to stand out from the crowd when applying to the highest paying jobs. No matter your location, profession, industry or career goals, earning a well-regarded MBA is a great way to add immediate credibility to your resume that can justify your requests for a higher salary as you advance on your career journey.

Business school requires a large investment of time and financial resources. But our Part-Time MBA students know that by earning their degree they will accelerate their career without interrupting their professional momentum. Many of our students are promoted into higher level positions before they ever graduate from the program because the Part-Time MBA Program is designed so students don’t have to wait until they complete the degree to begin applying their strategic-level knowledge. According to the Executive MBA Council, the return on investment for a professional MBA program is only three years, so the Part-Time MBA Program at William & Mary is an excellent investment that will pay dividends early and sustainably across your career.
