ROI Report on European Full Time MBA by QS


jimshui
Another report was released. The conclusion reveals that the salary of a European MBA graduate is higher than those of a master's graduate. However, it is arguable that the MBA graduate do already have far more work experience by the time they graduate.

That link is bust, you there is a supporting article at:
http://www.topmba.com/admissions/financing-your-mba/mba-roi-top-european-schools-mba-salary-boost

Four schools seem to produce a very high salary uplift, around 150%, because the students on average have much lower salaries going in to the programme than other ranked schools:-
- Vlerick
- St Gallen
- University of Edinburgh Business School
- ESMT

That said, NPV is always a better measure than RoI. The top ten business schools might have 'only' a 100% uplift, but the salaries in the 150K region add up to a huge lifeline premium over schools that might be a bigger percentage increase, but to smaller salaries.

The detailed report can be downloaded via the link I quoted by the PC's browser and you have to register QS account and login first. I tried to use iPhone and iPad to open it but failed.

In the report, NPV and estimated return in 10/20 years are stated.

what i couldnt understand in the report is how higher ranked schools show percentages less than the lower ranked schools in terms of employment with in three months for example strathclyde shows 97% and Manchester business school shows 81%/when you are a international student should be aiming for less ranked schools as most of them get employed and as result get a chance to earn and repay their loan

Manchester: 115,763 but say it takes on average three months longer to get a job. 98,839 at Strathclyde. Do the sums; at least $20k a year more for a 30 year career is more than three months' salary.

Similarly, 148,148 at IMD, but only 77% working after three months; 167,676 at IIM-A but only 88%... You've be crazy to turn down higher quality schools just because it takes longer.

The FT ranking is more useful: that shows salaries three years after graduating, so I used those for maximum insight. The differences grow over time, and that gives you better insight into the NPV.

I've taken a look at the report (Online at http://www.topmba.com/system/files/pdf-uploads/qs_roi_report_2015-v2.pdf). Misleadingly they describe the 20 and 10 year figures as both NPV and RoI but, indeed, the calculation is NPV. The tricky thing is that they add in the different average starting salaries, and that's something for each person to factor in because their opportunity cost will differ. At Mannheim, for example, the NPV is $3.5m and at Strathclyde it's $2.8m, but that assumes that the Mannheim student starts on 62,000 while the Strathclyde person is only on 50,000. In fact one person with the choice of two schools would have the same input salary, so the gap would be even larger.
