What Does It Take to Get an MBA?

What it takes to get an MBA


As you research whether or not to enroll in an MBA program, there are many things to weigh. From admissions requirements (including letters of recommendation, transcripts, and applications) to the cost of the program, and time to complete the program, there is much to consider.

The benefits that you will gain from earning your MBA must also be weighed against the cost and time commitment. More than 150,000 MBA degrees are granted each year with 60 percent earned by males and 40 percent by females. Nearly 57 percent of MBA students attend a part-time MBA program.

The job pool varies, as does salary ranges. Top job pools include financial services at 26 percent, technology at 21 percent, consumer products at 10 percent, and manufacturing at 10 percent. Top salaries include those in healthcare at $111,000, finance at $103,000, and consulting at $101,000.
