MBA Still Worth It? Absolutely, Say Alums
The most frequently asked question by anyone considering an MBA degree is simple enough: “Is the MBA still worth the time and the expense?”
A new study out today (Jan. 12) from the Graduate Management Admission Council has a conclusive answer to that question: Absolutely, yes!
The 2012 Alumni Perspectives Survey, which is based on opinion polls of 4,135 MBA alumni, including 963 members of the Class of 2011, found that three out of four alumni of the class of 2011 with jobs report they could not have obtained their job without their graduate management education. GMAC said this finding has remained relatively consistent over the last seven years and far exceeds the percentage of alumni who responded similarly during the recession of 2001–2003.
