In our most recent alumni survey, we recorded and analyzed responses from graduates of several different programs, including full-time MBA programs, executive MBAs, and part-time MBAs. When asked whether a graduate management education helped advance their careers, alumni not only said yes, but they also said that their advancement happened at a faster rate than it did for peers without a graduate business degree.
The question is no longer whether or not to consider business school, but to consider which type of program is the best fit and investment for you. Across many program types, 4 out of 5 business school alumni rated the value of their education to be outstanding or excellent.
