On average, MBAs from the top 45 B-schools will make around $2.5 million in base pay and bonuses over the course of a 20-year career. (that's $125,000 a year)
MBA grads from Harvard earn the most-a median of $3,867,903-over those 20 years. (that's $193,395 a year)
The numbers suffer from some inherent limitations-they don't include stock or options.
...It's hard enough to get into HBS, it''s gotta be even harder to be the HBS graduate that beats the statistics! This article states that the average HBS graduate makes less than $200,000 a year! That doesn't sound like much at all to me. I mean, the average age of someone starting at HBS is 27...so we're talking about 29-49 here. How big of a difference do those stocks and/or options make!?
