Best MBA Program Means Career Results

The best MBA program for you may come down to convenience or cost. But one of the most important factors when evaluating MBA programs is the career placement statistics for its students. After all, few of us pursue an MBA simply for the education. Often, an MBA degree is used as a gateway to a promotion, raise, new job, or change in industry.

George Mason University not only has one of the best MBA programs in Virginia, it has one of the best MBA programs in Washington, DC. A look at career placement statistics for the MBA class of 2014 is evidence of this.

More than 80 percent of students were employed at the time of graduation with salaries ranging by industry from $160,000 to $40,000. The top industries naturally included government and financial services but also non-profits and technology.

Mason MBA 2014 graduates saw great career results overall with 31 percent securing a new position, 52 percent receiving a promotion, and 68 percent receiving a raise.
