Double your Salary? Try an MBA.

“Seventy-five percent (75%) of those who earn an MBA switch careers, a new survey shows, and they can double their salaries by doing so. For those staying in the same field after earning their MBA, consultants earned the most, while those in the healthcare sector reported the biggest increase in their pay. Both men and women reported more than doubling their earnings after graduation. In their post-MBA careers, the median of those women’s earnings was $130,000 annually, while the men’s was around $140,000.”

— The Wall Street Journal, 2018

Learn What Medaille MBA Alumni Are Saying About the Program:

Adam Lange ’17

“I had a job in my field that I enjoyed, but I wanted more. I set forth a series of goals I wanted to accomplish, one of them being my MBA. After a great deal of research, I decided Medaille was the perfect school.

Upon earning my MBA from Medaille, I was recruited as a senior project manager, gaining significant increases in both pay and responsibility. I honestly don’t think this would’ve happened without the MBA from Medaille. My only regret was not enrolling at Medaille College sooner.”

 

Cindi McEachon ’10

“I was going through a divorce – single mom, two young daughters, struggling to make ends meet. I wanted a better life for myself and my children. I had my first daughter when I was 15 years old and, to me, this degree meant I did not need to be another statistic.

Shortly after graduation, I was offered immediate advancement opportunities. I was promoted to the position of Executive Director for a local nonprofit. This degree has afforded me the opportunity to advance my career and take care of my family.”
